Jeromy Farkas, 33, is serving his first term as Ward 11 Councillor and is one of the youngest city politicians ever elected on Calgary City Council. Since taking office, Jeromy has wasted no time in bringing a common sense, fiscally conservative, and data-driven approach to his work on your behalf at City Hall.
Prior to being elected, Jeromy served at the University of Calgary for eight years and ran the Israel Studies Program. Building on his experience as a Research Team Lead in Medicine, Jeromy developed his own successful small business focused on finance and data analysis.
Jeromy is a born and raised Calgarian and graduate of the University of Calgary and Bishop Carroll High School (Go Cardinals!). Jeromy lives in the Ward 11 community of Palliser and comes from a family of entrepreneurs and teachers who have deep roots in Southwest Calgary.
Jeromy is most grateful for the warm welcome Canada gave his family after escaping Communist Hungary in 1956. Jeromy has served on the executive board of the Palliser, Bayview, and Pump Hill Community Association, as a director on the board of the Weaselhead Preservation Society and has worked collaboratively with Mount Royal University to mentor students.
