List Of Candidates Continues To Grow For Lethbridge Civic Election


LETHRBIDGE:  Another candidate is acknowledging his intention to run for a position as a City Councillor in the October Civic Election


Mark Leeb has been a resident of Lethbridge since 1984 and has been involved with a number of local organizations such as the Royal Canadian Legion, Lethbridge Chamber of Commerce, and the Home Builders' Association.

When asked why he wants to sit on council, Leeb stated he wants to make a difference, to give back to the community and provide a voice to citizens. He says, "Every citizen, no matter what organization, how big or how small, deserves a voice and to have the opportunity to present their concerns. My job as an elected member of City Council would be to present those concerns to the City, to go out and find the facts and deal with the pros and cons of each issue, before making a decision."


The potential Councillor says he will help make those decisions, regardless of what his personal views are and based on what is right for the greater good of the city.


Leeb's primary focus is fiscal responsibility in the area of taxes and municipal spending. Leeb says he knows that's an issue for many residents so, he did a little research on taxes and relates what he found, "The consumer price index from January first of 2009 to today has only increased a total of 8.9% over that time period - our property taxes (for residential), have actually increased, over the same length of time, 23.9% , and that's quite a discrepancy between the two figures".


On final note, Leeb pledges to maintain, monitor and improve the quality of life for the citizens of Lethbridge.
