October 2022 will mark the next municipal election. I would like to advise the citizens of Prairie View Municipality that I will not be seeking re-election as your reeve. Thank you for allowing me to serve in this capacity for two terms. I have enjoyed my time on council, getting to know citizens and concerns in all corners of our municipality.
I am proud of the accomplishments of the Prairie View municipality these past eight years. The Town of Birtle water project, the Miniota Firehall, and Prairie View Fibre to over 600 homes are just a few of the projects which have been completed and have been met with ratepayer approval.
I want to extend a huge thank you to my fellow councillors, the administrative and public works staff for all the support and hard work that has happened through amalgamation and the many projects. Despite the pandemic, our staff has never failed to provide the services needed for our citizens.
Serving on municipal council may feel like an unappreciated effort at times, but I have also found it to be very interesting and sometimes challenging. I would encourage anyone interested in serving your municipality to consider running for municipal council. Thank you again for giving me this opportunity and I want to wish the new reeve and council the rewards of serving one’s area – the level of government closest to the people.
