Sharon Riehl moved to Dauphin in 1995 and she bought her first home in the city two years later in 1997. She has grown to love Dauphin and in her opinion, there is no place like Dauphin and no place she would rather be.

Living in the community for more than 25 years, Sharon has seen Dauphin grow but she has also seen crime rates rise as of late and now, she wants to give back as she has so much in the past by volunteering. Joining a long list of well-known and established Dauphinites, Sharon is running for council in the upcoming Municipal Election that takes place on October 26.

Riehl has a passion for people and she has a passion for the community of Dauphin and she's ready to take the next step if elected.

"I want to see our community come together as one and I want to be able to work with fellow councillors," said Riehl. "I want to help make it a community where people aren't scared to be outside on the streets."

Sharon says she is for the people and all she wants is a safe Dauphin and a Dauphin where everyone wants to stay and live, regardless of age. She says she is an extremely loyal and committed person that is ready to help in any way possible.

"I have the time and I am ready to do this," said Riehl. "I'm willing to learn and I'm willing to put myself out there. Being a part of a team excites me for the greater good of Dauphin."
