A life-long Red Deerian wants to serve his community as a member of City Council.

Rick More announced Thursday he is running in this fall's municipal election.

For the past 12 years More has worked for the Red Deer and District Chamber of Commerce and recently served as Interim CEO. He says he prides himself on maintaining a strong professional network and understanding of local business.

In addition to working for the Chamber, More has extensive management experience as a small business owner and corporate management in a large food chain.

In a release, More describes himself as someone who is family-oriented with a strong sense of pride for this city. He has been involved with various community initiatives and board placements on non-profits which include Red Deer Rotary Club, co-chair for CNIB capital fund raiser, AMA, Women’s Outreach, and Scotties Tournament of Hearts. Most recently, More was part of the coalition group to bring a Child Advocacy Center to Red Deer.

More founded the Smiles Thru Lindsey Foundation in 2015 in memory of his late daughter, Lindsey.

“This foundation allowed me to re-evaluate my priorities in life, and what is most important to me, which is serving the community and making a meaningful difference in the lives of the citizens,” More said. “I believe through City Council I can leverage my skills and experience and make Red Deer a better place to live, work, and play.”

More says he believes that solutions only happen through dialogue, debate, involvement and vision.

The municipal election in Red Deer takes place on Oct. 16.
