Jeromy Farkas

Councillor
Calgary Police Commission

Jeromy Farkas is the City of Calgary Councillor for Ward 11. One of the youngest Calgarians ever elected to Council, he aims to bring a data-driven, fiscally conservative, and entrepreneurial focus to City Hall.

Councillor Farkas is the first openly LGTBQ person to hold municipal elected office in the City of Calgary, and his family arrived to Canada as refugees following the 1956 Hungarian revolution. Prior to public office, he served as a research team lead at the University of Calgary’s Faculty of Medicine, as Senior Fellow at the Manning Centre, and developed his own small business focused on finance and data analysis.

He is an avid cyclist, ultra-distance mountain runner, and competes regularly in the Calgary Ironman 70.3.
