Endorsements

 

"I am personally supporting Mimi Williams for Ward 7 and I hope that others in my community will do so also. I have been living in Ward 7 for almost 20 years and I love living in a neighbourhood with big trees, character homes, and friendly supportive neighbours. At the same time I recognize the challenges facing communities in Ward 7 and believe that Mimi will be a strong advocate in City Hall.

Mimi not only cares passionately but she knows the facts and figures to back up her positions with strong persuasive arguments. I look forward to Mimi taking on a new role in her work with our communities by winning a City Council seat."

I'm turning 30 this week and as a first time home-owner (made possible because I'm a public sector worker), I know I can count on Mimi to represent my interests because she cares about working class people."
- Denny Holmwood, Beacon Heights

"I don't know of anyone who works as tirelessly and fearlessly for her constituents as Mimi Williams. I have no doubt her spirit and intelligence will be a much needed breath of fresh air in an otherwise stuffy city council chamber."
Ian Weetman, Montrose

"Mimi really cares about our ward. I have lived in and around this area since my elementary school years - before the Yellowhead was built - and now live with my husband in the Alberta Avenue area. We have worked hard to improve and revitalize our community and that’s how I met Mimi.

She understands how things work with the city and knows that we need a voice on city council all the time (not just during an election year). We may not agree on everything, but her solutions are well-thought-out and she’s open to listening to what others have to say."
Cora Shaw, Alberta Avenue

"Mimi is very passionate about people and the issues of everyday life that affect them. She is always quick to help out any way she can. Mimi is a strong, smart, independent woman who is going to be an amazing representative on city council.”
Tammy Smith, Killarney

"As someone who grew up in Ward 7 and chose to plant my roots here as an adult, I am excited to vigorously throw my support behind Mimi Williams for City Councillor.

Mimi will be a dedicated and true representative of our ward. She has also lived in Ward 7 and passionately supported it for years and years. And she’s the only candidate who has the knowledge, experience and organization to defeat the incumbent. That’s pretty important to me.”
Christine McMeckan, Bellevue

"Mimi has been active in the community for many years. Her knowledge of civic affairs is extensive. A vote for Mimi is a vote for a tireless community advocate."
Brett Donaldson, Highlands

"I am so tempted to move to Ward 7 so I can be represented by Mimi Williams. I’ve known her for many years. She’s smart, hardworking, and has spent her life championing the dreams of people who don’t often get a seat at the table.

She has proven passionate about improving the lives of Edmontonians, whether through her personal help or through challenging systems that need to be challenged. Her combination of detailed analysis and big picture thinking, of being critical and fair and compassionate, is much needed. Mimi will be brilliant on Edmonton city council."
