Time to move on from town council


To all who my path has crossed over my 27 years in municipal government, either as an employee of the Town of Olds or elected mayor: “cheers.”

I felt inspired by the responsibility to help make the lives of Olds residents better, along with the opportunity to support a brilliant community filled with dedicated citizens, businesses and valued community organizations willing to encourage each other.

The relationships I have nurtured with community, council colleagues, administration and elected officials across Alberta, truly will remain the foundation of lasting memories in my life.

I am privileged the residents of Olds entrusted my voice, along with six council members, to provide leadership, plan and build your future.

Winds of change are calling: I acknowledge through deep reflection, it is time to release my tether and endeavour to spread my wings.

All the best to each candidate for your courage to step forward in the name of your community.

Yours in “commUNITY;” with gratefulness in my heart.
