Erin Buss has filed for candidacy to represent Ward 4. The primary election will take place Aug. 14, 2018.

Buss is a mother of three and an experienced caregiver. She has spent the last five years working with elementary students, primarily in special education. Her experience advocating for students has turned into a passion for speaking up for those whose voices may not always be heard.

"As a participant in the Red Wing Citizens Assembly, I learned a lot about residents' concerns and the importance of doing the work to keep this city on the right track," Buss said. "People want their government to be responsive, accountable and accessible. I'm excited to bring a fresh viewpoint to City Council - it's time for Red Wing to move forward."

Buss also intends to run in the Ward 4 special election to complete the term of former Council member Peggy Rehder, who resigned on May 7. Candidate filing will open for that position on July 31, and the Ward 4 special election will take place on Nov. 6.

Ernie Stone also has filed for Ward 4.
