BETTYLYN BAKER: Relationships are essential
City council candidate Bettylyn Baker says building relationships is essential for Red Deer’s future.
Baker is a former teacher and is the owner of Learning Links, a home-based business dealing with vision for adults and children with learning disabilities.
“My platform is basically to maintain community,” said Baker. “Balance with budget and social. Building relationships is key because without those we have nothing in Red Deer.”
Baker said the challenges ahead for Red Deer include ensuring infrastructure is in place, maintaining balance of services and working with other municipalities and the province.
She says she has board experience to offer the city. She is the chairperson of the Red Deer Native Friendship Society board. In the past, she has sat on the Catholic Social Services boards locally and provincially.
