    Carla Frost ran for ward 6 as councilor. She is considering running for Mayor in this 2017 Edmonton City Election. Even though she did place in the last 2 city election but has never won. Interesting choice.

      I think Frost should run for Mayor. She is born and raised in Edmonton. She knows more about community and Safety then anyone else l know. Also her outstanding work ethics speak by action. She has been working in environmentally services for over 25 years. People love her creative communication to reach others especially special needs and people with health concerns on all levels. One thing ; for sure she would make the council like a community family not sit as mayor and ignore councils concerns. She loves to be fair minded and she is a true community soldier in spirit for Edmonton. Come on Carla Frost run for mayor. You got our vote.

      Afternoon Im sitting in my garage and a van stops in the alley…a female exist the van and says she taking donation for Carla.lol…nice reputation this woman is getting

    1. Trudy

      Hope not. Don’t like my tax dollars paying a credit card company to use their service. Just go to your bank and pay there

  2. Carla Frost

    Please contact city of edmonton election office if you are being bothered about donation for Carla Frost. I am a self-funded campaign.

    Thank you
    Straight from the heart
    Carla Frost for Mayor

  3. Debbie Engel

    I Dave my name is Debbie Engel and the Facebook attached to my account is not current. My Facebook is Debbie Engel. Thanks for doing this it is an awesome site!

      I must disagree with you Carla. I have heard from several candidates in the election cycle that daveberta has not included their information on his site. Doesn’t make for a good impression of someone who claims to be a top political blogger.

  4. SC

    Wards 4, 5 and 9 will all have interesting fights (since no incumbent). Too bad that a candidate with only 20-25% can get elected. Definitely a need for ranked ballot/STV in municipal polls.

  5. m

    Is there a reason why you have not put the social media information for Ward 4 Candidate Wade Izzard on your blog?? Are you not suppose to be an equal for voice for the election??

  6. Jonathon Jacobter

    Too bad the city itself doesn’t make information as easily available as this. Thanks for links, and now I shall go out to vote 🙂

  7. madmater

    Who designed those crap ballots and how many thousands did we pay them to do it?
    Pretty sure it’s not some single mother trying nto feed her kids on minimum wage. You know, that job say is the most important in the world?
