Barb Miller, Alberta NDP candidate for Red Deer-South

Barb Miller

Alberta NDP

I love the city of Red Deer, and I have proudly advocated on behalf of this community as MLA for the past four years.

Prior to being elected, I worked in a number of roles, from working as an educational assistant to a bank teller and Safeway cashier.

What each role taught me is the importance of standing up for everyday Albertans.

Those experiences motivated me to run for office so that I could advocate for seniors, kids and everyone in this region.

From building the Gaetz Avenue interchange to the new justice centre and new schools, I am proud of the work we have accomplished over the past four years.

I know there is more work to do, that is why I am running again, so I can continue to fight for Red Deer to ensure it gets the support we need.

That means continued investment in education and health care, including the expansion of the Red Deer hospital.

I promise that if re-elected, the hospital will not only be expanded, but we will also ensure that it has the staff that are needed to take care of patients.

Our economy is recovering, but I know there is more work to do. A big part of that work is making sure our economy is more diverse, which is why I am proud that we have the biggest energy upgrading plan in Alberta history.

On top of working to get more value for the resources we own, we will not stop fighting to get a pipeline built.

I believe that a successful Red Deer leads to a successful province. That is why I have been fighting for Red Deer and why I promise to continue doing so if re-elected.
