Council welcomed newcomer Ernie Gendre of the Stettler ward. He’s an older brother of incumbent councillor Joe Gendre of Erskine-Buffalo Lake.

Former councillors Dave Grover of Big Valley and Les Stulberg of Byemoor-Endiang also returned to the table to join other incumbents Greggory Jackson of Botha-Gadsby and James Nibourg of South Erskine-Warden.

“We have three new councillors for this term, two of whom bring several years of experience with them and one who has not served on council before,” Reeve Nixon said.

”I look forward to working with this new council to strive for continued success in our county.”

He also commended the candidates in the recent election.

“I would like to also thank the incumbents who lost, for their involvement in public service for the last number of years,” he said.
