Support & Vote for Inspiring Leadership | Calgary’s Mayor Naheed Nenshi – World Mayor 2014

Ismailimail highlights the third of 4 posts today, seeking support from our readers to vote for some inspiring people and organization as they continue in their quest for excellence and making a difference.

Canada’s only candidate, Calgary’s Mayor Naheed Nenshi has been short-listed for global recognition by the City Mayors Foundation. The London based philanthropic organization, released its final 26 nominees from its list of 121 mayors up for consideration, for the bi-annual World Mayor Prize to be awarded in January next year. Voting closes on October 31st, 2014.

Presenting Mayor Naheed Nenshi:

Naheed Nenshi, the young charismatic mayor of Calgary – Canada’s fourth largest city, has gained authority despite his young age thanks to his charisma, humor and projects in the conservative city.

“In Canada and in particularly in Calgary, it’s possible to do and to be anything regardless of where you come from,”

– Mayor Naheed Nenshi

When Naheed Nenshi was elected in 2010 as mayor of Calgary, Alberta, he became the first Muslim mayor of a major city in North America. This is all the more notable considering many view Calgary as Canada’s most conservative city. In an interview earlier this summer, Nenshi said that the topic of his background has rarely been raised by voters in Calgary, as they are much more interested in his plans for the city.

While Nenshi has faced significant opposition, such as from powerful real estate developers, he nonetheless landed the number two spot – just behind Prime Minister Stephen Harper – in the 2013 ranking of Canada’s most powerful people from the news magazine Maclean’s.
