City council incumbent Paul Harris promises to represent residents at the table and fight for more amenities, including a 50-metre pool and a concert hall in Red Deer.
Harris, 51, is seeking a second mandate after what he calls a good first term that left some loose ends, including the long awaited 50-metre pool, opening the conversations on a concert hall, environmental issues and developing Riverlands.
“We need to be able to address our financial position with our social amenities, as well as our wastewater, sewage, roads and all the other day-to-day things that keep our city functioning,” said Harris.
“If we don’t have the social infrastructure with it, we’re going to have beige and boring. Everyone can get where they are going but they have no place to go.”
