Let's Stay Connected

My name is Michael Janz.

I want to be your voice at City Hall.

Through smart urban planning focused on building happy and healthy communities and experienced leadership, we can build a more affordable city for all ages, wages, and stages.

As we recover from the pandemic, we have an unprecedented opportunity to invest in strong core public services and build a city that prioritizes the wellbeing of people and the environment: a strong local economy, just and inclusive neighbourhoods, and urgent action on the climate emergency. Read more about my priorities for our city here.

I bring over a decade of elected service as your public school trustee and I’ve served as a leader in the non-profit sector helping young people. See my neighbourhood endorsements, read my priorities, or provide your suggestions on how we can build better neighbourhoods and a better city for everyone. 

Many previous and current candidates may share these priorities or perspectives. What has been missing and will be critical is the political will, experience, and courage to turn them into action. Learn more about my experience and what sets me apart.

Will you join me?

“Michael Janz has experience getting things done! As a City Councillor Michael will engage Ward papastew communities to make a better and stronger Edmonton, post pandemic!”

Having served on the Edmonton Public School Board with Michael from 2010-2013, I can attest that Michael has an exceptional skill set building partnerships and collaborating to get the job done. His imagination and tenacity will serve Edmonton well in facing the challenges of the 21st century.

"As the former Student Union President at the UofA, I understand the importance of championing the voices of students, staff and families of those connected to the University of Alberta. Michael also understands the opportunities and challenges facing those Edmontonians and I know he will help ensure these voices are heard at city hall."

"I have known Michael Janz for over 15 years and have found him to be an effective leader whose influence with all orders of government led to improvements in our public education system. He genuinely cares about, and will work hard to address, the important issues of our community."

Michael is a great team player with a strong community background and a wealth of relevant experience that will prove invaluable as city council attempts to reshape this city to deal with a wide array of financial, social and operational challenges.

As Trustee and Board Chair, Michael built relationships with government, community, Industry, and post-secondary institutions. I have no doubt he would be just as effective in building strong communities as City Councillor as he built strong schools as Trustee.

Michael's experience at the EFCL helping neighbours take ideas and them into action, combined with over a decade of managing billion-dollar capital and operational budgets make him the perfect kind of leader we need at City Hall.
