LYNNE MULDER: Excited about strategic plan

Third-term Coun. Lynne Mulder has unfinished business with the City of Red Deer.

Third-term Coun. Lynne Mulder has unfinished business with the City of Red Deer.

Mulder has confirmed that she will seek a fourth and likely a final term during the Oct. 21 civic election.

“We took so many new projects in this past year,” said Mulder. “I am so excited about our strategic plan and the direction we are going with the charters. It really seems too abrupt to let go of it without seeing those things through.”

Mulder, 66, said there are many exciting things happening in Red Deer that she wants to be part of it. She is looking forward getting started on the Riverlands development, finding new ways to engage the public and moving into the crime prevention aspect through the safety charter.

In the next four years, Mulder said it will be important for the city to act on the initiatives within the Environmental Master Plan and the Waste Management Plan to divert waste from the landfill.

She wants to ensure that council continues to be fiscally responsible and accountable when it comes to the budgeting process.

Mulder said she brings a wealth of experience and a great background to the table. She’s worked in post-secondary education as a president and vice-president academic at Red Deer College. She is a former nurse, teacher and administrator.

Mulder was first elected in 2004 and re-elected in 2007 and 2010. Mulder said she is proud of the work council has accomplished over those nine years.
