BUCK BUCHANAN: Unfinished business

Strengthening partnerships and building for growth are key for a Red Deer city council incumbent making a run for a third term.

Strengthening partnerships and building for growth are key for a Red Deer city council incumbent making a run for a third term.

Coun. Buck Buchanan said he has a lot of unfinished business that he would like to settle over the next four years. The second-term councillor said he wants to make more headway in safety, poverty reduction and transportation needs in the city.

Buchanan, 55, said the world is changing and the younger generation is choosing places to live for the amenities and not solely for a job.

“If we need a 50-metre pool, another recreation centre or whatever, then let’s get it,” said Buchanan.

“Let’s move in that direction. Let’s make that happen so that we have the facilities so our own people have the benefits to use and it’s attractive to people to come to the community to live.”
