This morning Linda Johnson, candidate in Calgary’s Ward 11 released her donor list on her web site and committed to continuing to update the list through the election campaign period.

“Transparency is key in elections,” said Johnson, “It’s so important that voters be able to look at candidates and know who is supporting them. It’s about knowing the people behind the campaigns and assessing a candidate’s position wholescale.”

Johnson’s list includes donors that contributed to her campaign at all dollar values.

“I believe that we need to raise the bar in politics, honesty is an incredibly important policy, and trust is an incredibly important value. Releasing a donors list is one small step in the right direction.”

The Linda Johnson Campaign Donor list will remain online and be regularly updated through the campaign period.
