City council’s longest-serving alderman, Dale Hodges, announced Friday that he will not seek re-election in the next civic election.
Alderman Hodges lived in northwest Calgary for over 38 years. He was first elected in 1983 and is serving his 10th term as alderman for Ward 1.
During his three decades at city hall Alderman Hodges served alongside five mayors and 50 aldermen. He fought to improve transit and parks facilities for residents of his community and famously led the charge to have a Hell’s Angels clubhouse in Bowness demolished.
After 30 years in office Alderman Hodges’ understanding and insight of the issues facing our community will be greatly missed, but we thank him for his services and wish him well as he ventures into retirement.
Best wishes from Team Ken Richter!
