Check your watch, cause it’s time for your daily instalment of the Work in Progress ‘Election Series’! In episode four, hosts Alex Putici (Work Nicer) and Ernie Tsu (Trolley 5 & Alberta Hospitality Association) get chatty with Calgary Ward 1 Council candidate, Sonya Sharp.
Catapult onto that couch and listen to Sonya tell Alex and Ernie all about her plans to challenge the status quo, increase councillor transparency and break down mental health stigma in Calgary! Fun fact: Sonya says she’s knocked on 2,200 doors since starting her campaign on August 10th – that’s a heck of a lot of doors, people.
Quote of the episode: “I’m not a career politician, I’m not even going to call myself a politician. I’m here to do good work.”
