Another candidate for City council has thrown his hat into the election ring.
Victor Mobley announced his intent to run for Red Deer City council earlier this week.
“I have been interested in serving in public office for some time now and since moving to Red Deer, I have felt the need to get involved to make this City a better place to live and do business in,” said Mobley. “Red Deer is a unique City being between two large economic centres and being a local area hub. We have a unique role to play in this area and this province.
“This City is ready to move past being a good city to being a great city and I believe I can contribute to us making that leap.”
Mobley, who moved to Red Deer in 2012, said he brings knowledge from his seven years as both a service advisor and parts person. He currently is employed by a local agricultural parts distributor.
“I bring a unique perspective to council in that I have only lived here for one year. I have seen what is done outside of the City and I bring an outside look to current City views,” he said “I believe in bringing a new, fresh and progressive view to Red Deer City council. I bring strong integrity, honesty and character. I believe in running the City in a way that is sustainable and responsible in all aspects of the City.”
Mobley sees crime, spending, responsibility and accountability as issues that need to be addressed in this election.
“Red Deer has one of the worst crime rates in the province. We have debt that has accumulated due to our City’s growth that needs to be managed in a progressive and responsible way without creating a burden on current or future taxpayers,” said Mobley. “I will bring ideas forward that will help to benefit the majority of the community not just a small segment or a special interest group.
“I believe that together, we can create a community that is not only a great place to live in and do business in now but will be an excellent community to live in and conduct business in for years to come.”
He added during the campaign he is looking forward to meeting and talking to people.
“I’m looking forward to getting out in the community.”
