Candidate Interview: Jonathan “JJ” Sunstrum

As part of the ongoing series of candidate interviews I’ve been conducting for the municipal election in Calgary, I interviewed JJ Sunstrum last week. He’s running for mayor.

While he is not the candidate I will personally be voting for, he does have a lot of interesting ideas. One thing he talks about that particularly resonated with me is how the newer C-Train cars diminish social interaction by the way the seats are arranged. The older cars provide more opportunities for people to connect with each other (something I am very much in favour of).

Here’s the video interview with JJ (my apologies for the wind noise — I should have put a filter on the microphone):

James Kohut for Calgary Ward 6

I interviewed James Kohut this past week and have finally got the video up. James is running for Calgary city council (“Alderman”) in Ward 6. Of the candidates running in Ward 6 — there are five on the ballot — James is most closely aligned with my values. He is a fervent advocate for meaningful democracy, and actively pursuing environmental responsibility — both in his own life and his politics.

Here is my interview with James:
