I am pleased to be able to provide this letter of support for Detective/Sergeant Mohinder Banga as he embarks on a run for election as an Councillor in the upcoming Edmonton civic elections.
I have known Mohinder since he has joined the Edmonton Police Service 28 years ago as a fellow police officer and colleague. Further, I came to know Mohinder quite a bit better in his role as an elected Director of the Edmonton Police Association since 2004.
Mohinder started as a fellow Director with the Edmonton Police Association. As I continued my career in the EPS and sought new roles in the Edmonton Police Association, Mohinder was a consistent and solid presence as I assumed the role of Secretary, Treasurer, Vice-President and ultimately the President of the Edmonton Police Association from 2009 to the end of 2015.
I found Mohinder to be a solid and contributing member of my Board of Directors throughout this time period. He was a voice of reason and logic within the Board and always provided sound and valued input to Board discussions and decisions.
Mohinder served on many committees during his time on the EPA Board and could be counted on to do a good job on any task he was asked to perform. His advice was always valued and sound and as he grew within the role and became a senior member of my Board, I highly valued his input.
I believe that Mohinder will be a valuable contributor to the civic scene should he be successful in his run for City Councillor.
