Hello everyone, my name is Tudor Dinca and I am running to represent you, the constituents of the new Ward 5. Born in Romania, my parents chose to immigrate to Calgary in pursuit of a fairer, prosperous and more open society for themselves and for their children.
For our first five years in Canada, our family chose Castleridge as their home. Growing up in the NE I developed a special bond for the area. One of my fondest memories has always been the tight relationships that I fostered making friends with people from all over the world. In many ways, growing up in the NE has given me a firsthand look at what the Canadian experience is all about, people of all backgrounds coming together from all over the world looking to create a better community.
Although I had always had an interest in politics, my developing years in the area really helped cement my desire to pursue education in the field of public policy. Later on I decided to foster this further so I graduated with a BA degree in Policy Studies from Mount Royal University. I continued my studies and developed professionally in various public and private sector roles in both Canada and Europe.
Today, I still find myself back in the area. From visiting friends, to tutoring young students to volunteering at my old high school, a part of me always feels connected to the NE. I know the community well and I want to see it thrive, not only for my friends but for all those people who call it home.
As a result of the many lessons that I have learned from living in the NE, I’ve had the opportunity to see the world with open eyes, to ponder about cultures that I would have never experienced and to self analyze from perspectives previously not possible. As a result of all the sources of growth that this area has given to me I would like to give back my energy, my knowledge and vision to foster its growth.
If elected on October the 16th as Ward 5’s new City Councillor I will work together with all the residents and businesses in the area to help improve the safety, infrastructure and services in Ward 5.
Together we can have Prosperity through Community. On October 16th – Vote Dinca Tudor for Ward 5!
