Laura Stephan announces bid for Red Deer County Council

Stephan is running for councillor of Division Six

Laura Stephan is striving to make Red Deer County a “safer, stronger and more vibrant community.”

According to a press release from Stephan, she is running for a seat on Red Deer County Council as the councillor for Division Six. She says she wants to bring a strong and sensible voice to the council chambers.

Stephan believes her work and volunteering within Division Six will help to make her a voice and representative of the unique groups of people living in the division.

She calls herself both fiscally conservative and committed to any and all responsibilities she takes on.

“I care about my community and I’m committed to making it better,” Stephan said.

Stephan has been an active member in local women’s and children organizations including acting as a children’s mentor, organizing food drives and local clean-ups and coordinating lectures, talks, activities and seminars.

If elected to council, Stephan says she will recognize the value of residents’ taxes.

“I will bring passion and commitment to Red Deer County and ensure that ratepayers get the best value for their tax dollars.”

She says she will be cost-conscious and will work to ensure County taxes are kept low.

Working as a councillor offers unique challenges, but Stephan says she is committed to meeting each challenge while serving residents of the County.

One goal Stephan hopes to meet if elected to council is to strengthen the safety and security of the county and for those within Division Six.

“I have what it takes to be a good member of council,” Stephan says.

The municipal election is held on Oct. 16. The election poll will take place at the Poplar Ridge Community Hall from 10 a.m. – 8 p.m. on Oct. 16.
