More voters have already turned out to vote at advance polls for the Red Deer municipal election compared to 2017.

“In the four days we’ve raced we’ve already beaten that 2017 total,” said Rodwell.

“We really hope that by having 13 days of advance polls at three separate locations, people know they can get out. There will be no queues and crowds at the advance poll, because there are so many opportunities, and the more people who show up to vote at the advance poll, the less crowds there will be. on Election Day, which will make it a safe and efficient experience for all of our constituents in Red Deer.

On Thursday, a constant number of people voted. When advance polls opened on Monday, 732 people voted, followed by 762 on Tuesday, 769 on Wednesday and 721 on Thursday.

“Live wait times for each polling station are available on our election website to make voting even easier. Voters can select the fastest and most convenient station for them. “

She said the feedback so far has been positive and the experience has been very quick.

“There haven’t been long lines yet at any of our polling stations. People seem to be extremely grateful for the additional cleaning and disinfection measures our staff use. “

All voters and staff are required to wear a mask, and polling stations will operate at one-third of their capacity to ensure appropriate distancing. Voters are also given single-use pens or can choose to bring their own.

Voters in Red Deer can vote for mayor, trustee and trustee positions, and can also vote for provincial senatorial elections and two referendum questions.

“Some people take longer with the ballots, but if you are prepared and know how you are going to vote, it can be extremely quick. You can get in and out in five minutes, ”Rodwell said.

The city is encouraging Red Deer voters to take advantage of advance polling opportunities this Thanksgiving weekend.

Red Deer voters can vote at one of three advance polls, open daily from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. until October 16:

Chittenden County has been the focal point of a statewide affordable housing crisis for years, if not decades.

The New England Federal Credit Union says it wants to help.

Giant checks and everything, Credit Union President John Dwyer has announced plans to hand over $ 6 million to two established housing agencies in a bid to alleviate the crisis.

At a press conference Thursday, Dwyer pledged $ 3 million to the Vermont Housing Finance Agency, a nonprofit helping low- and moderate-income Vermonters, to encourage home ownership. affordable home ownership and creating multi-family rental properties.

An additional $ 3 million will go to the Champlain Housing Trust to support home ownership for Blacks, Aboriginals and people of color in the northwestern part of the state.

At the same time, the credit union is rolling out its own program to reduce barriers to home ownership by providing down payments and mortgage insurance.

Dwyer said the credit union believes the impact of its resources will be amplified by directing funds to two groups it has worked with previously.

“These are the experts,” he said.

While the housing crisis in Vermont has been going on for a long time, the pandemic has highlighted the struggle to find a place to live in Green Mountain State and what that means for residents, old and new. Chittenden County is experiencing an all-time high of vacant rental housing, and affordable housing is so limited that waiting lists for subsidized housing have stretched into the thousands.

The 2020-25 Housing Needs Assessment from the State Trade and Community Development Agency indicated that housing stock growth has slowed over the past 40 years. In addition, house prices have increased at a rapid rate, and nearly 50% of Vermonters are “burdened with housing costs”, having to spend 30% or more of their income to keep a roof over their heads. .

While the housing crisis affects many Vermonters, there is a disproportionate effect on BIPOC households, according to the Champlain Housing Trust.

“If you’re white in Vermont, you’re almost three times more likely to own a home than if you’re black,” said Michael Monte, managing director of the Housing Trust.

” It is not a coincidence. This stems from this country’s heritage of housing policies which secretly and openly discriminates against blacks, ”he said at the press conference. “With these funds, we will work to remedy this injustice.”

In an effort to lower barriers to home ownership, the Vermont Housing Finance Agency said it plans to launch a pilot program to build affordable housing for middle-income families with an emphasis on location housing in economic centers.

“Homeownership creates equity, which is the biggest asset of the middle class,” said Maura Collins, executive director of the housing finance agency. “If we hope to emerge from this pandemic with stronger, more equitable communities, we must make affordable housing a priority. ”

Dwyer pointed out that as the state’s largest mortgage lender, the credit union has issued more than $ 1.6 billion in mortgages since January 2020.

“The credit union has benefited from this level of activity, and our management believes these commitments are important given our role in housing,” he said. “We strongly believe that organizations that build on the strength of the community should, when they can, give back to the community and help make it better. “

The City of Red Deer is encouraging voters to go to the polls early for the next municipal election.

Advance polling opens Monday and will last 13 consecutive days.

Advance polling will be open from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. daily until October 16. Voters will be able to choose one of three advance polling locations: Parkland Mall, Baymont by Wyndham Red Deer and Westerner Park.

“We encourage voters in Red Deer to vote early in this election,” said Returning Officer Samantha Rodwell.

“Advance polling gives voters many opportunities to vote early while helping us reduce the number of people in polling stations on polling day. “

On Election Day, October 18, voters will not have a dedicated neighborhood polling station, but instead will have a choice of eight polling stations across the city.

Larger facilities were selected rather than small community facilities to ensure capacity and space for physical distancing. Polling stations will operate at one-third of their capacity in accordance with current provincial public health guidelines.

“We selected larger facilities for the polling stations to ensure that we could implement the necessary health measures to ensure the safety of voters and staff during a pandemic election,” Rodwell said.

“As a bonus, voters will be able to select their polling station according to a time and place that suit them. “

The city’s elections website will host a map of polling stations with real-time updates on wait times at each location. Information will be updated regularly throughout the day on advance polling days as well as on election day, giving Red Deer voters an informed choice on where to vote.

Eligible Red Deer voters will vote for mayor and councilor for the city of Red Deer, school councilor for Red Deer public schools or Red Deer Catholic regional schools, three Senate appointments and two referendum questions.

Election information, including details on where to vote, who is standing and how to vote, is available on the elections website at elections.reddeer.ca.

The 50th Washington High School class reunion of 1971 has passed, but the memories will last forever. After 45 years of happy reunion, this anniversary called for something special. Three years of planning, a notice board, a legacy fund, an amazing website, and a nationwide search for missing classmates would make this 50th reunion better than good. That would be great. Then Covid intervened.

As the Daviess County Covid Infection Scale turned orange, the 1971 planning team did what was necessary. With careful concern for the safety of the entire Washington community, every event has been altered. Against all odds, a great reunion project turned into an exceptional weekend for all.

Thursday’s informal event included a lunch and work party at Debbie Klingensmith Hamdan’s home. Two hundred gift bags were filled with black and gold M & M’s and memorabilia. Classmates gathered that evening for alfresco dining at The Chamber where old friendships were rediscovered and new ones were formed.

Friday was a busy day. Golfers at Country Oaks had a perfect weather and the Baymont euchre party turned into a social event. When the class gathered for lunch at C de C, the tables were full and the hardworking waiters never stopped moving. After lunch, former professor Don Spillman led a historical walking tour of Main Street. Classmates on the tour shared memories of the movies, food, shopping and parades on Main Street. Thanks, Don! The final event of the day was a visit and program to the beautiful Daviess County Museum where 54 deceased classmates were commemorated with a donation of $ 1,971 to the museum.

Saturday morning opened with a basketball breakfast organized by Doug Lemmon in honor of former coaches. This was followed by visits from WHS and North Elementary School. The Class of 1971 Legacy Fund gifts were presented to the WHS Group and North School, followed by an outdoor performance by Golden Pride. Lunch at Mi Pueblo featured delicious meals accompanied by the roar of happy classmates.

Saturday night’s big celebration has moved from the Gasthof loft to the home of Vicki Collison Bubalo and Alan Bubalo. Without their gracious offer to open their outdoor spaces and home to the classroom, a reunion would not have been possible. Thanks Vicki and Al. The 1970s theme included photo backdrops and groovy clothing, outdoor seating, fire pit, and poolside entertainment. A slideshow of former teachers was accompanied by a song of thanks sung by Darlene Petty Dyer and Gary Dyer. David Brown’s Ham and Bean Soup, Bonnie Griffith Brown’s Coney Kramer Sauce, and a sumptuous buffet were complemented with a cake from the 1971 class and chocolate-dipped Hatchet cookies. Sunday’s Car Fest tent welcomed walk-in visitors and provided one last chance to experience all that makes Washington special. The 50th Class of 1971 reunion brought laughter, friendship and unforgettable memories. Stay tuned and watch the Reunion 55 website. Let the good times roll.
