Sam Khan Ward 2 resident
Authorized by the committee to elect Sam Khan
Moving Forward... Giving Back
I have been an active Ward 2 community resident and volunteer for the past six years. I have witnessed Regina's growth and vitality and I'm constantly amazed by the spirit and commitment of its volunteers. I am honoured to have been co-president of the Albert Park Community Association, President of the Saskatchewan Cricket Association and Vice President of the Regina Pakistan-Canada Cultural Association. Each of these positions has enhanced my appreciation for our great city and its dedicated citizens. Together, we have and can continue to accomplish much.
Kudos to our Mayor and City Council for moving forward on so many positive initiatives from the "Design Regina Plan" that have improved the quality of our lives in Regina. New "green schools" are under construction, infrastructure has been improved and an affordable housing initiative is underway. Clearly, more changes are needed, especially in light of the immigration influx to our city. I want to be a part of those changes as the Ward 2 representative. Together, we can accomplish much.
During my years of working with residents of Ward 2, I have repeatedly heard a number of issues raised. Ongoing concerns include the need for a community association in Harbour Landing, greater involvement of Aboriginal youth in City activities, a revitalized downtown, city-wide public access to wi-fi, greater citizen participation in decision-making and public transportation improvements. I believe that the best method of community input to these issues is through the election to Council of community-minded and community-engaged volunteers. Together, we can accomplish much!
