A mother of three who says she has “good old-fashioned common sense” has joined the field of Red Deer city council hopefuls.

Tanya Handley, 39, says her name will be on the Oct. 21 civic election ballot.

“My greatest asset is good old-fashioned common sense,” said Handley. “I honestly believe every dollar that is spent with tax dollars is my money essentially. I want it to be spent the way I would spend it — carefully. I have to live within my own means within my house and I expect the city to do the same.”
