Edward Ramsden on St. Albert’s future

Edward Ramsden

What do you envision for the future of St. Albert?

Do you want it to remain a haven for large single-family dwelling lots. Do you want more density? Do you see a mix?

Is St. Albert a vital part of the Edmonton capital region? Is the city’s growth being managed with other communities and their plans in mind, or does St. Albert’s vision stop at its civic boundaries?

When it comes time to make decisions at council on planning items and policy, what council’s really doing is setting up this community’s future. The decisions made by the council candidates who are hoping to join could easily reverberate decades down the road.

With that in mind, our final question for candidates before St. Albertans vote on June 24 was about the future of this city.


What is your vision for the future of St. Albert?


Edward Ramsden

My vision for St. Albert is to build a community to thrive in. We need to create a youth council to ensure youth are active involved in building the city. Young families need to see value for their tax dollars, while we work to offset the residential taxes by opening up more land for businesses. I believe my energy and enthusiasm combined with experience of being a small business owner can provide leadership to help move the city forward.
