Swift Current, SK: Freelance broadcaster and small business owner/operator Ryan Switzer has joined the race for a spot on Swift Current City Council.


“The time is right. I’m in a place where I have plenty of life experience and the energy to work hard for Swift Current” said Switzer.


The 43-year-old father of two feels he has had a great experience raising his children in Swift Current and hopes young families grow to love the community as much as he does. 


“We have great schools, beautiful parks, an abundance of activities for kids and many ways to stay entertained. There have been some exciting events that have come to town. We’ve also grown unique shows like the Great Southwest Shakespeare Festival, and we’ve had some great moments to be fans of our local sports teams. Despite the challenges of COVID-19, we can get back to those good times together.”


Switzer acknowledges there are challenges ahead.


“We have some aging buildings that have served the community well for decades. Council needs to look at ways to replace aging facilities that are nearing the end of their lifespan. While keeping taxes low, we need to find ways to build new facilities to keep all of our citizens active. Beyond the things we see and touch, there is aging infrastructure that we generally take for granted that will continue to need to be addressed. Managing community infrastructure is vital to Swift Current’s long term health.”


What will Switzer add to City Council if elected?


“Work ethic, accountability and perseverance. I have one mouth and two ears, and I respect that ratio. I look forward to the challenge of earning a seat on Council and serving this community I love so much.”
