For City Councillor
City of Red Deer
Hello fellow Red Deerians! Whether you've been in Red Deer for a long time like myself (over 40 years) or are a newer resident, we all have something to offer this wonderful city we call home. I'm running for a councillor position to support you from a grassroots perspective with a common sense approach to finding common ground, and making things happen as efficiently and effectively as possible. I've worked as a school counsellor for 20+ years where my primary role is to LISTEN.
|Personal & Property Safety/Sensibilities||I've volunteered for Victim Services and appreciate the trauma of horrific crimes that occur. We need to continue to support this and also continue to address the petty crimes that cost our citizens a lot financially and emotionally.|
|Balance Fiscal Management w/ Growth & Development||Let's plan and build for the future in a sensible, cost-effective fashion (eg. twin arenas or more instead of stand alones). I've spoken with seniors in their 80's and 90's who promote new facility infrastructure since interest rates are so low .|
|LISTEN and Learn on my dime and time||Speaking of fiscal management and cost overruns, I would like to address councillors' salaries and suggest a move towards a stipend for services.|
