Call for resignation of Calgary Board of Education Trustee Lisa Davis
This petition made change with 195 supporters!
After serving 8 months of a 4 year term, recently elected Calgary Alberta, CBE Trustee Lisa Davis of Wards 6 & 7 announced she will be seeking the UCP nomination in the riding of Calgary Bow, to run in the next provincial election (spring of 2019). As documented in the Calgary Herald, Lisa Davis cites her inability to get things done as a trustee for leaving, while claiming she “consulted with her constituents” and was “told they want her to continue her work on the school board during the nomination process”.

As a constituent of Ward 6 & 7 who was not consulted, this petition asks for the immediate resignation of Lisa Davis as she pursues higher office.
The conflict of interest where Ward 6 schools overlap with YYC BOW boundaries blur lines. Will Trustee Lisa Davis attend CBE events in those overlapping areas as a trustee, or campaign as a UCP nominee? She has already indicated an inability to affect any real change, so remaining in her current position while seeking higher office does the citizens and students of Wards 6 & 7 a great disservice.
If you are a resident of wards 6 & 7, or your child attends a CBE school in wards 6 & 7, or simply a resident of Calgary concerned with the precedent this sets, please consider signing this petition asking Lisa Davis to resign immediately. The students and citizens of Wards 6 & 7 deserve committed and effective representation.
