Jefferies elected as board director for AUMA

  • Dec. 1, 2010 4:37 p.m.

City Councillor Cindy Jefferies has been elected to the Alberta Urban Municipalities Association board as director for Cities up to 500,000.

“I feel very strongly that the voices in cities up to 500,000 need strong and active representation to advocate for our needs, and I couldn’t be more honoured to have been elected to the AUMA board to be that voice,” said Jefferies. “I believe through collaborative relationships we can arrive at better decisions and empower municipalities to achieve their goals.”

Red Deer City councillors agreed to take on additional responsibilities to not only support Jefferies, but to also give her additional time needed to fulfill her obligations to AUMA.

“By having a member on the board from Red Deer, it increases our advocacy efforts not only for Red Deer, but also the Central Alberta region,” said Jefferies.

The Alberta Urban Municipalities Association was founded in 1905 and represents Alberta’s 284 urban municipalities including cities, towns, villages, summer villages, and specialized municipalities, as well as associate and affiliate members.

Their goal is to develop a strong partnership between all three levels of government through a shared vision with long-term planning that facilitates social and economic growth, a strategic and stable funding matrix for capital projects, vital emergency and social services as well as implementation and coordination in the delivery of these services.
