REGINA: Andrew Stevens, an Assistant Professor in the Faculty of Business Administration at the University of Regina, is running for Regina City Council in Ward 3.
Stevens is an accomplished university instructor and researcher with over a decade of experience with policy making, board governance, and leadership positions.
“It is time for the City of Regina to realize its potential as a vibrant, welcoming and inclusive city,” said Stevens. “As an experienced volunteer, researcher, and as a proud member of the Cathedral area community, I hope to be a valuable new voice on Council.”
Stevens, a father of two, is a strong advocate for public services and infrastructure, and has a long history of community involvement. He is an active board and executive member with Briarpatch Magazine, the Canadian Centre for Policy Alternatives, the Regina and District Labour Council, and the Unemployed Workers Help Centre. Andrew is also a volunteer with the Regina Open Door Society, where he is currently helping a Syrian refugee family settle in the city.
“The City of Regina can do more to encourage civic engagement, including providing greater transparency when it comes to decision-making and creating forums to discuss our most challenging issues like homelessness, racism and reconciliation,” said Stevens. “If elected I will be a progressive voice on City Council.”
Andrew’s priorities for City Council:
• Fixing our infrastructure
• Building a Regina for everyone
• Greening Regina
• Controlling executive compensation
