A former accountant is looking to put his financial expertise to work as a city councillor.
 
Brian Kelly has called Fort Saskatchewan home for 45 years.
 
"I want to and I believe it's my time to give something back to the city," proclaimed Kelly. "It's been a great place to live and a great place to work."
 
For over a year now, he's been attending council meetings and analyzing the financial picture of the city.
 
"I have serious concerns about the spending patterns and the budget policies and the way budgets are approached in the city of Fort Saskatchewan."
 
He hopes that, if elected, his extensive experience will help change policies so the Fort will be better financially and a better place to live.
 
"It's easy, as a councillor, to sit and vote in a new amenity for the citizens, that typically garners votes," said the candidate. "It's a lot more work and a lot less attractive to try to curtail spending and that's where I see my contribution being."
 
He added he's committed to the long haul to get things done in council.
 
Kelly has a website with more on his platform as well as a Facebook page.
