Druh Farrell: Resign Immediately from The Calgary Homeless Foundation Board of Directors as the City of Calgary's Representative

Druh Farrell: Resign Immediately from The Calgary Homeless Foundation Board of Directors as the City of Calgary's Representative


Reason: Gross Incompetence


The Facts: 


Whereas,


1.  Druh Farrell, Ward 7 alderman, sits on the Board of Directors of the Calgary Homeless Foundation (CHF)


2.  Farrell has failed to discharge her duties as a representative of the City of Calgary.


3.  Farrell has failed to negotiate a single new affordable unit of 1200 new units in the Ward 7 East Village, which is a publicly funded initiative through the CMLC (Calgary Municipal Land Corporation) which is a wholly owned subsiduary of the City of Calgary, its only shareholder.


4.  Farrell also failed to negotiate a single new affordable unit in the Sunnyside/Kensington projects Pixel & St John's. Also in Ward 7 and only blocks from Farrell's own home, Pixel & St John's, have not allotted 1 new affordable unit of the 200 they are building.




A total of 1400 new units... Not one new affordable housing unit.




This is gross incompetence and Farrell should resign from the CHF immediately.
