Yesterday I announced that this will be my final term as Mayor, and I will not be seeking re-election in October.
It hasn't always been easy, but I believe the objectives we set for Calgary back in 2001 have largely been achieved. And I believe that in politics, when you reach your goals, that's the right time to move on.
Reaching those goals has always been a team effort. We couldn't have done it without you - your support, friendship and hard work over the last nine years are truly responsible for "Moving Calgary Forward".
From the bottom of my heart, thank you!
