Are you interested in making a difference by helping to create a community that is vibrant and welcoming? Do you have a vision that provides a greater quality of life for your fellow citizens? The 2013 municipal election is an opportunity to express that vision and we encourage you to consider running for municipal council.
Alberta is home to a wide array of communities: summer villages, villages, towns, and cities – and each has its unique set of opportunities and challenges. That’s why it’s important to have local leadership in the form of a municipal council who understand these matters and can work with citizens and the business community to make the best decisions for the future of their communities.
Local leadership is most effective when it comes from diverse sources. So, whether you are a community volunteer, parent, property owner, business person, or newcomer, your perspectives are important in informing the future direction of your community. Please consider this opportunity to serve the best interests of your community and run for municipal office for the upcoming four-year term.
