As a child in 1977, Peter Demong moved to the newly established community of Lake Bonavista from Saskatchewan.  Along with the rest of his siblings, Peter spent his formative years in what are now the most established communities of Ward 14.  As long as Peter can remember, conversations with his family around the dinner table were lively.  They piqued his interest in history, law, politics, and government.

With his wife Naomi, Peter has owned and operated Deer Valley Florist since 1996.  Married in 1990, the couple are raising two daughters aged 13 and 19.  Their flower shop has become a mainstay in the Ward 14 community and also a soapbox for residents.  This is one of the things that prompted Peter to run for City Council.

With 18 years as a business owner, and 25 years in the field of Logistics Management under his belt, Peter brings a successful business background to Council, offering the ability to tenaciously manage budgets and understand the needs of small and large businesses alike.  His experience speaks to his practical views on civic matters, his knack for effective management, and his commitment to fiscal responsibility.  Along with his compassion and sense of fairness, Peter’s voice on Calgary City Council is one of common sense and realism.

Among Peter Demong’s passions are encouraging citizen engagement, and supporting hard-working community volunteers.  His essay contest for Grade Six Students, the Ward 14 Communities BBQ, and his innovative Aldertalk sessions are proof of this.  Involved with many initiatives aimed at improving corporate efficiency, he has chaired Council’s Cut Red Tape Committee and sits on the 311 Guiding Coalition.

First elected for Ward 14 in October of 2010, Peter Demong is presently serving his second term as Calgary City Councillor. He currently sits on the following boards and committees:

Standing Policy Committee on Utilities & Corporate Services – Chair

Standing Policy Committee on Transportation & Transit
