Heading to the polls this Monday, voters for Clearview School Division vote in three wards.

Heading to the polls this Monday, voters for Clearview School Division vote in three wards. Polls will be open from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m., with stations for the Stettler ward at Stettler Community Hall.

For voters in the Erskine-Donalda ward, ballots can be cast at County of Stettler office, Erskine IOOF Hall and Village of Donalda office.

Out in the eastern region, voters in Ward 4 can vote at Byemoor Community Centre, Village of Botha office, Gadsby Community Hall and County of Stettler office.

“We are encouraging residents of Town of Stettler and in the County of Stettler to help choose the community members who will serve on the board of trustees by casting a ballot for school trustee when they vote in the upcoming Oct. 21 election,” returning officer Peter Neale said.

Stettler Ward 3 incumbent Peter Simons and newcomers Staci Gerlitz and Dave Goodwin are vying for two seats.

Again, Simons will seek to maintain his seats on Clearview and councillor for the Town of Stettler.

For the area of Erskine and Donalda (Ward 1), Patricia Standage challenges incumbent trustee Cheri Neitz, also of Erskine.

In the Botha, Gadsby, Byemoor area (Ward 4), incumbent Rhonda Maginn faces former trustee John Schofer, who is also seeking a seat on County of Stettler council for Byemoor-Endiang.

“Voting for school board trustees on election day is important because the school board makes decisions that affect the community’s economic, social and cultural life,” Neale said.

He noted the board annually manages more than 31 million in tax dollars, employs over 450 people and is responsible for the care and education of more than 2,400 local school-aged children.

“Our policies and decisions have a tremendous impact on the local community,” Neale said.
