With the heart and soul of Red Deer in mind, a first-time councillor is seeking a second mandate.
Coun. Dianne Wyntjes said her heart and ears are to the ground to make Red Deer better.
“I like to think about what people need,” said Wyntjes. “I am a good community citizen. I care about my city. I plan to live here in my retirement. I am willing to work hard and to listen. I see this as a full-time job. I don’t do it as a secondary job. It is my job.”
Over the last three years, Wyntjes said council had a good track record with its work related to governance and the mid-year budget review.
On personal level, she was most proud of the motion to keep Michener Centre open, working to keep Red Deer’s water clean and most recently the conversations around a living wage in the city.
She said these issues are important because they are the decisions that impact residents.
