Candidates Receive Ask Her Funding & Sign the Ask Her Candidate Pledge
Ask Her is proud to announce the participation of 21 female candidates in this year’s elections for Calgary City Council exceeding our goal of 20 women running. Compared to the 2013 municipal election, this is more than double the number of female candidates who ran municipally in Calgary last time.
Ask Her’s limited private fundraising efforts have resulted in the ability to offer the nine candidates who signed the Ask Her Candidate Pledge funding of $400 each. In addition, two candidates signed the pledge but declined funding.
In order to be eligible for funding, candidates must have completed Ask Her’s Candidate Pledge and declare whetherthey would like to receive funding. Ask Her promised transparency and clarity around our financial support and is following through on that commitment by sharing the names of the candidates who signed the Ask Her Candidate Pledge and accepted a donation as well as those who only signed the Ask Her Candidate Pledge.
