Last night, we had the pleasure of having Edmonton mayoral candidate Don Iveson as our special guest on the fourth #yegvote Google Hangout. Over the course of the hangout, Ryan Hastman, Mack Male, and I questioned Don on some of the hottest issues of the election campaign.
The conversation topics coverted potholes, the downtown arena project, LRT, spending and debt, the Terwillegar housing first proposal, and a few other pressing issues (like the state of the Oilers and Eskimos, and whether he prefers Star Trek or Star Wars…).
An advocate for smart growth, Don Iveson was first elected to City Council in 2007 and was re-elected in 2010. He chairs City Council’s Utility Committee and the Capital Region Board‘s Transit Committee. Don and his wife Sarah Chan, a music teacher, have a 4-year-old son and a 1-year-old daughter.
