My name is Scott Richardson, I have spent my whole life living in this great community and I am proud to now raise my 4 children here. Not only do I call Morinville home but it’s also a place where I do business. For 7 years my family has owned and operated Morinville Sports Ltd.
I am an active volunteer within our community. From 2005-2008 I volunteered on the Morinville Fire Dept. I have held a variety of positions with Sturgeon Hockey Club, from coach to level director. I am currently President of Morinville Minor Baseball where I have served on the executive board for the past 8 seasons. I created and still organize the Morinville Craft Beer Club that has approximately 200 members on Facebook. Most recently I have joined the Morinville Rotary Club where I am excited to do meaningful projects in the community.
4 years ago I ran for council out of the love for my community and neighbours. I am grateful for the opportunity given when I was elected to serve the residents of Morinville in 2017 and in October 2021 I will be seeking re-election to once again serve this great community.
For the last 4 years I have taken pride on being an active voice for Morinville residents at the council table. I have fought hard to reduce spending, find efficiencies and support regional collaboration to ensure the residents of Morinville have adequate services without inflating taxes. During my tenure on council I made a motion to prioritize Morinville businesses while procuring products and services. This motion was intended to keep tax dollars in town with Morinville business who give back so much to the community. I want Morinville to be a business friendly community where residents can Live, Work & Play.
While on council I have made it a priority of mine to curb inflating taxes. I have worked hard to reduce spending, encourage fiscal responsibility and keep administration accountable to the residents of Morinville. I fought for transparency and opted out of closed session meetings. I am approachable, responsive and accountable to the residents of Morinville. I take pride in the fact that I bring forward many resident concerns, even when those concerns sometimes cause uncomfortable conversations and tough discussions. If I am re-elected I will continue to fight for you, be your voice and be accountable to the residents of Morinville.
Why vote for me?
I still have much to offer the community of Morinville. I bring diverse experiences and open perspectives. I will listen to what the people of Morinville want and I will take action. The learning curve is steep for a newly elected councillor and I am in full stride. I will get to work day 1 of being elected and will continue to fulfill my promises to the residents of Morinville. I want Morinville be a place where kids have an abundance of opportunities, a place where businesses can thrive and a place where people are proud to call home!
I am Scott Richardson, I want what is best for our community and I want your vote October 18 2021!
