Lea Switzer To Take Another Stab At A Council Seat


LETHBRIDGE:   The candidate list for those running in the civic election continues to grow. Lea Switzer is taking another stab at a Councillor's seat, after finishing just outside the pack in the last election and also in the following by-election.


Switzer is a local business woman and 2 term Public School Trustee. She has served 6 years on the Children's Services Board and is a current member of the Persons with Developmental Disabilities South Board.


In a news release from Switzer, stating she is entering the Aldermanic Race, she reflects on the previous three years a City Council work: "It is clear that there is significant public concern about large capital projects like the land purchase and construction of the Casa building, the Stafford Drive Administration Building construction management bankruptcy, the new transit and equipment pool building time delays and predictable cost overruns."


Switzer believes public money must be managed responsibly, the Council needs to be honest and provide full disclosure, and that Council should look at new ways of providing the services that keep the community strong and appealing.


As a Council contender, Switzer also noted: " Municipally we can't stand alone. With dwindling support from the provincial government, it is vital that the City of Lethbridge learns to become more efficient in utilizing taxpayer provided funds and accessing new partnerships in its role as key service provider to the citizens of Lethbridge."
