Respectful Council

I am committed to the highest standards of personal and professional conduct.

St. Albert City Council must govern our community by adhering to high standards of respectful and professional discourse.  Council members must have a thorough understanding of the decisions under consideration, including the outcomes and consequences for St. Albert, now and in the future.   Council members, holding conflicting opinions, must exemplify dignity and respect during council discussions. Council behaviour must be above reproach.

Over the last four years, St. Albert City Council has been challenged to interact in a courteous and constructive manner.  This form of debate is unproductive and does not lead to collaborative problem-solving.   Bullying and abusive behaviour can never be considered or defined as exemplary “governance.”

Council must model the leadership conduct our community holds as appropriate.
