Infrastructure, safety are issues in by-election

Angela Greenidge has six years school trustee experience

City By-election coverage

Submitted by Angela Greenidge

My name is Angela Greenidge. I was born in Grenada West Indies. Immigrated to England for nurse training. I was sponsored from England in 1982 by the Wetaskiwin Hospital and worked as a nurse until my retirement in 2015 with the Alberta Health Services.

I am happily married to Tony Greenidge for 30 years and we have two adult children Andrew and Matthew Greenidge, both were born here, one daughter in law and a precious 10-month-old granddaughter name Alexandrea.

As a family, Tony and I are very active in our parish and community. Andrew and his family live in Stony Plain, Alberta and Matthew in Lethbridge, Alberta.

I am an active member and a volunteer in our community. I have served on the Catholic School Board as a Trustee for six years which I think will be an asset to city council and working with others for a common goal for the Community at large.

I also have previous Board experience e.g. Past Library Trustee for four years, Past Board member of Leaders of Tomorrow and many other Boards.

As a proud citizen of Wetaskiwin, I have a passion and vision for the city council working collaboratively with fellow Councillors. I want to see Wetaskiwin grow and flourish , be the “go to community to live” and want to be part of it.

My top priorities are lowing the mill rate for small businesses and residential taxes, the city biggest weakness. We have to control tax increases. What we are seeing right now is an increase in taxes every year and a decrease in services.

– Lobbying the Provincial Government to make Highway 13 and 814 safer, first by a temporary means e.g. traffic lights, until something permanent can be built e.g. Traffic Circle. Public safety is a concern. One life lost is one life too many.

– Infrastructure of good roads and services.

– Increase Community Safety

Attraction and Retention of new businesses

– Attraction and Retention of new residents. Both produce growth

-Control city spending and ask the tough questions before spending

We need to move Wetaskiwin forward not backward. We need to promote Wetaskiwin as open for business and to sell her as a great city to live.

Voters should elect me because I am approachable, passionate, a dedicated team player and a strong advocate and voice for all residents and the city of Wetaskiwin

I am understanding, a good listener and hard worker. I get along with people and have a clear vision for taking action and getting things done.
