"I am proud to support Jen Burgess as the NDP candidate for the constituency of Calgary Glenmore in the upcoming provincial election. I first knew Jen as a talented organizer and party activist. Later, while I was Minister of Transportation, Jen worked as my Ministerial Advisor. I was impressed by her work ethic and her grasp of complex policy issues. But more importantly, I appreciated her commitment to social equity and especially her ability to connect with regular people. I have no doubt that Jen will be a superb candidate and an excellent MLA."

"Jen is committed to community and ensuring there is a bright future for all Calgarians especially for our children. She does more than talk. She acts and lives her values. Raising a young family, being a resident of Calgary Glenmore and working behind the scenes in government and on provincial political campaigns, Jen is uniquely qualified to represent the people of Calgary Glenmore now and in the future."

- Jan Damery, Community Leader and 2021 Mayoral Candidate

   

"Jen lives in Calgary Glenmore and has deep roots in the community having served on the locally community association board and advocating for transit to be expended to the area. I will be out door knocking with Jen and I hope you will too."

- Brian Malkinson, Glenmore member and former Minister of Service Alberta

 

 

"I have known Jen for many years as a capable, compassionate, and thoughtful community advocate. She managed my winning CBE campaign for Wards 11/13 and continued to work hard to make Calgary a better place.

We need candidates who have a record of fighting for their communities. From my experience it is not only essential for a candidate to advocate for the community they serve but also living in the community is essential to truly understand  the people you represent. For all of these reasons- that is why I am supporting Jen!"

-Julie Hrdlicka, Former Calgary Board of Education Trustee for Wards 11/13

"Jen has been a strong voice for women in her community for the many years I have known her. As a mental health specialist and the former Associate Minister of Health, I know how important it is for women to have advocates who can represent them and their families in the legislature. Jen's experience in government and in community organizing makes her the best candidate to beat the UCP in the next election"

- Brandy Payne, Mental Health Specialist, former Associate Minister of Health

 

 

"Jennifer Burgess is a prime example of what the progressive future for both Calgary and Alberta could become. The value she places upon our education, health care and all other social services is matched only by her commitment to her local community. Through good times and bad she will always stay in the fight for her constituents and embodies all the best qualities of an NDP candidate."

"When Rachel Notley called Jen in 2019 and asked her to be the candidate for Calgary Glenmore in the next election, I was excited by the prospect of a better future in my community. I believe in Jen because she has community and political experience. I have seen her dedication turned into action first-hand. She will make an exceptional MLA. She has deep roots in this community, and she is a person who shows up for the people she cares about. It is our great good fortune that she wants to show up in the legislature for us."

Jen knows Glenmore. This is her community. And with over a decade of experience advocating and standing up for it, it’s one she loves and cares deeply about.
Confirming Jen as the NDP candidate for Calgary-Glenmore will get us one-step closer to having the kind of strong voice we need for our neighbourhoods. One we can trust to get results.”
