A Red Deer father wants to create a strong, stable and safe community for his children.

Calvin Goulet-Jones, 26, owner of a local tile setting company, has confirmed that he is making a run for city council.

The 26-year-old is the man behind the recent petition calling on city council to hire more front-line police officers. Goulet-Jones said he has a strong interest in politics and has given the decision serious thought for several months.

“Over the past 10 years our citizens have started to become aware of the excessive tax increases to both our utilities and our property taxes,” said Goulet-Jones in an emailed statement. “Citizens have become aware of the rising crime within the city. Citizens have become aware of the pure waste within government for which council is not held accountable.”
