Flagstaff County Council is comprised of a representative from each of the County's seven divisions. The Reeve and Deputy Reeve are elected by the members of Council annually at the Organizational Meeting. As governed by the Municipal Government Act, a municipal election may be held every four years, should one be required. Drawing upon their unique experiences and diverse backgrounds, Flagstaff Council members work together as a unit to provide the direction and outcomes that will best serve the interests of the municipality as a whole.

    As I serve my fourth term on Council, I feel it is very important to realize, as a “Community of communities,” we need to be innovative to offer a high level of service. I look forward to working with all our communities and volunteers to deliver these effective and efficient programs and services.

    I hope the upcoming years will bring us closer towards regional thinking and sharing of the resources that we struggle to keep active in our towns and villages for all our citizens, young and old, alike. Thank you for the previous years, I look forward to the future as I serve on Council.

    I am currently serving my first term on Council. I believe the need to provide responsible and affordable services to the residents of the County are of utmost importance when endeavouring to attract new people and prevent the decline of population in our communities.

    I am honoured to represent the ratepayers of Division 6 and Flagstaff County. I believe in a responsible government and I agree with most decisions of past Council. I also believe there are areas that need improvement. I look forward to working with my fellow councillors and the residents of Flagstaff County. It is my objective to make Flagstaff County a strong place for business and a great place to raise a family.

    I am currently serving my second term on Council. The need to provide efficient, effective, and equitable municipal services to all residents of the Flagstaff Region is important to me, beginning primarily with ensuring there is an efficient, well-developed road network system.
