My name is Iannie Gerona (she/her); I am running for a seat on Edmonton City Council in the North Central ward known as tastawiyiniwak (ᑕᐢᑕᐃᐧᔨᓂᐊᐧᐠ). As a Filipina-Canadian woman who immigrated to Canada with my family in 1999, I am incredibly privileged to call North Edmonton home since I was 10 years old. Growing up, I relied on using our city’s public transit wherever I needed to go; whether that was getting to St. Cecilia Junior High School, hanging out with friends at Londonderry Public Library or Northgate Mall. Using our biking paths to the River Valley or the tennis and basketball courts around the North Central. I have come to learn that we are part of an incredibly diverse and inclusive community. I am so proud to be a part of that and believe that City Hall should reflect the same. I love my community and want to give back to it in whatever way I can. North Edmonton has made me who I am today, and that’s why I’m running to represent it on October 18, 2021.
I will be collecting donations made to help launch the next steps in supporting my candidacy in the upcoming city election.
According to the Local Authority Elections Act:
You can reach me on my social media accounts, by email, or even by phone; all of which are available below. Though I may not respond immediately, I try my best to get back to every message I can.
I am eager to get to know each and everyone of you! Together, we can put Edmonton on the map as a city that inspires and encourages change. We know Edmonton is great, but let’s make it even better.
