Red Deer City Councillor Buck Buchanan was elected to the Alberta Urban Municipalities Association (AUMA) board as director, cities up to 500,000.

“Alberta municipalities are the backbone of our great province,” said Councillor Buchanan. “Representing cities with a population of up to 500,000 is a responsibility I am passionate about. I feel very strongly that we need dedicated and active representation to advocate for our needs and I couldn’t be more honoured to be elected by my peers to bring this voice to the AUMA board of directors.”

Red Deer City councillors agreed to support Buchanan’s bid for the board of directors.

“I am committed and determined to support our AUMA municipalities. This is a critical time for municipalities with the review of the Municipal Government Act (MGA) to ensure cities up to 500,000 are fairly represented,” said Buchanan. “In addition, having a member on the board from Red Deer ensures the voice of Red Deer, but also the Central Alberta region, is heard and is part of the provincial conversation.”

The Alberta Urban Municipalities Association was founded in 1905 and represents Alberta’s urban municipalities including cities, towns, villages, summer villages, and specialized municipalities, as well as Associate and Affiliate members, representing more than 85 per cent of Albertans. Their goal is to develop a strong and engaged partnership between all three levels of government.
