Sifton keeps all-male council

The RM of Sifton Council is going to remain an all-male table for the present, although a woman stepped up to run in the recent by-election.

Ward 1 has voted to elect their new representative on council in the by-election that closed Dec. 2. Rick Kenderdine won the contest with a clear lead over Louise Stitt and James Rolfe.
