With a week to go until Elkford’s Municipal Election, Mayor Dean McKerracher is wishing luck to all 11 council candidates.
He looks forward to seeing who will get elected to the new council.
He says once the dust settles October 20th, he’ll be ready to plan ahead with the six elected for the next four years.
“We’ll do a strategic planning session and go over what we’ve got planned now and for the future,” McKerracher says. “If there’s some changes that the new council decided that they want to do to the next five year strategic plan, that’ll be their privilege.”
McKerracher is also praising the efforts of outgoing councillors Joe Zarowny and Ken Wildeman.
“Joe would love to stay on longer, but he can’t physically and health wise. I think he’s done a great job while he’s worked with us on the wildlife management as well as senior’s housing,” McKerracher says. “Councillor Wildeman is stepping down because he feels he needs more time with his family and he wants to travel a little bit more.”
McKerracher was acclaimed as he was the only candidate to come forward in the mayoral race.
