I’m Jenn Schmidt-Rempel, Candidate for Lethbridge City Council.
I’m Jenn Schmidt-Rempel, and I’m asking you to vote for me on October 18 to be your voice on Lethbridge City Council. Learn more about the four pillars of my platform: People, Service, Business, and Community.
My spouse Tim and I grew up in Southern Alberta. We have built our home and businesses here in Lethbridge, and I love to share the stories of this amazing place we call home.
I am a partner in a communications and marketing consulting business as well as several local quick-serve restaurant franchises.
I currently work at the Lethbridge Public Library as the Manager of Marketing & Social Media. If you ever picked up an issue of Lethbridge living magazine or any of its associated publications, I was the owner, publisher, and editor for 10 years until 2017.
I know Lethbridge and our surrounding communities.
I was raised in Claresholm and moved to Lethbridge to attend University of Lethbridge in 1988.
I am a passionate representative and advocate for our city and Southern Alberta.
I have helped community organizations and non-profit groups engage and connect with residents, and elected and non-elected officials at the local, provincial, and federal levels.
I also understand the need for Lethbridge to connect and work with our surrounding communities.
I am engaged in our city.
Over the past year, I have connected with our community by joining the Lethbridge Chamber of Commerce Board, where I also serve as Chair of the Champion Committee.
I recently served on Economic Development Lethbridge for five years as the Non-Profit Sector representative and had the honour of serving two years as Board Chair.
I am an active member of the City of Lethbridge’s Subdivision and Development Appeal Board, and a Patient/Family Advisor in the South Zone for Alberta Health Services.
I’ve previously served on the Lethbridge Allied Arts Council as a Board Member and its President, as a Board Member on the Covenant Health, Lethbridge Community Board, and worked on a number of Lethbridge BILD committees when it was the Canadian Homebuilder’s Association – Lethbridge Region.
I advocate for Lethbridge’s success and help promote our city.
I have represented Lethbridge and various organizations on six successful Team Lethbridge missions, where I was part of a group of community leaders that works to raise awareness of how Lethbridge contributes to the province, and how we can further work with our government representatives to support long-term success for Alberta.
During my time as the owner of Lethbridge living, I represented Lethbridge and small magazine publishing for five years at the provincial level on the Alberta Magazine Publishers Association, serving as that Association’s President for three years.
I had the opportunity to represent Lethbridge, and small magazine publishing in western Canada as a Board Member of Magazines Canada, where I was also able to meet with several MPs in a national initiative that was initiated to help MPs understand the challenges and importance of the magazine industry in Canada.
As part of my work with Alberta Magazines and Magazines Canada I assisted in the development of a magazine industry profile for Service Canada, again bringing the voice of small publishers and business in western Canada to a federal platform.
I love sharing the stories of this place we call home.
From helping with a neighbourhood Jane’s Walk to bringing the united message of our city to Edmonton on a Team Lethbridge mission, I love to share that Lethbridge is a great place to live, work, and play.
On October 18th, I’m asking you to vote for me.
