About Jennifer

Updated Picture for 2nd Print (2).jpg

My name is Jennifer Rice, and I’m running for City Councillor in Edmonton Ward Ipiihkoohkanipiaohtsi (former Ward 10), where I’ve resided for over a decade.  I look forward to bringing my professional qualifications and passion for serving our community to Edmonton City Council. 
 

I have hands-on experience within Alberta working in government business operations, finance and budgeting, all of which will help me serve you effectively on City Council.  I have held a number of leadership roles at the provincial government level, including managing financial and project management reporting on a public infrastructure budget of nearly $1 billion, and working with over 100 community-based organizations across Alberta to serve community and family safety and homeless prevention programs. 
 

I am both capable and committed to moving our city towards a greater focus on our core municipal responsibilities. This means ensuring our city’s projects, programs and services are delivered in a more relevant, efficient and effective manner.  I am also committed to avoiding continuous tax hikes by increasing our city’s fiscal efficiency and supporting local business development by shortening the amount of time it takes to get a business licence or permit.  Most importantly, I’m committed to listening to Edmontonians before making major decisions that affect their every day lives.
 

Some highlights of my experience that will support me as your representative on City Council include:
