For City Councillor
City of Red Deer
My name is Sarah Harksen. I have lived in Red Deer for the better part of 17 years. My husband and I have 4 children, one of which just graduated from High School. I have a University Degree in Sociology from University of Calgary as well as a Legal Assistant Diploma. This year I have decided to run for city council because I believe the City of Red Deer needs Change, and a new positive direction.
|TO BE HEARD||I believe the people of Red Deer have a right to be heard. I will fight for the people and businesses of Red Deer so they can express and be part of their community involvement. As a Councillor I will be more engaged with community.|
|TAXES||Covid has affected a big part of our economy in Red Deer. I would like to advocate that property taxes and businesses taxes have no increase for two years to help rebuild their economic loss post Covid.|
|MORE AFFORDABLE HOUSING||We need more affordable housing for families and the marginalized communities for Red Deer.|
|CRIMINAL ACTIVITY||For years the City of Red Deer has been on the radar for one of the most dangerous cities to live in, in all of Canada. I would like to discuss the options of us getting our own Red Deer police force to help combat these concerns.|
|ROADS AND MAINTENANCE||I would like to budget for no more windrows, and better road maintenance for the secondary roads Red Deer.|
