I grew up on a farm East of Lampman. I started working at the mines in 1976 and have continued working there for the past 37 years. I had the privilege of getting elected to council in 1994 and served as a Councillor until October 2012, at that point I was elected as Mayor. This has been a great experience for myself and my family, having worked with so many different people and dealing with many issues over the years. My wife and I have enjoyed raising our family in this great community. We have a great Council and staff and look forward to serving our fast growing community and working through issues to make our City an even better place to live. Please feel free to contact me any time at 634-1801.
or 421-0501.

I was born and raised in the Carlyle area and have lived in Estevan since 1965. Estevan has been a great place to live and do business. I worked retail for over 40 years, and operated my own business for 25 of those years. I have always enjoyed volunteer work and have done so with the Rotary Club, Chamber of Commerce, Souris Valley Theater, Woodlawn Park, Estevan Showcase and the Estevan Humane Society of which my wife Marlene is a board member. Thank you to the citizens of Estevan for allowing me to be a council member for a second term. I always try to be available to handle whatever concerns the public may have and always follow up to find a solution. Striving to serve the public has been my life ambition. Thanks for allowing me to serve a third term.

I was granted the privilege of going to work for the citizens of Estevan after the 2012 election. Following a lengthy career in municipal administration, I returned to health care in 2011 as the Executive Director of St. Joseph's Hospital of Estevan. Having lived in the area my entire life with exception of my college years, I have had the privilege of serving our community on many community initiatives, which is what led me to the next step of seeking a seat on council. We are fortunate to live in an amazing community with endless opportunity and the future is so very bright for Estevan. To achieve this promising future, I along with my council colleagues have made fiscal management a priority. I consider it an honour to represent Estevan and please do not hesitate to contact me with your suggestions and concerns.

Having come to Estevan from North Battleford in 2007, I have seen the difference between the two communities, and I know what makes Estevan a great place. I have been actively involved in supporting the community through my business, Power Dodge, since coming here. I now have the privilege of serving the ciizens on council, and on the boards for the Estevan Bruins, Woodlawn Regional Park, and Creighton Lodge. Thank you, Estevan, for allowing me this opportunity. I look forward to serving our growing community and working towards a prospserous community in which its citizens can thrive.

I came to Estevan in 1988 and I consider my family blessed to live in such a great community! My husband Stewart and I have 3 children and 1 granddaughter. I am the manager of Creighton Lodge, while my husband is employed in the oilfield where he has been a proud oilfield worker for 30 years. I have spent the past 20 years raising children, volunteering in our community with Estevan Minor Hockey, United Way of Estevan, the Estevan Bruins, the Elecs High School Football Club and other fundraising events that support our community organizations. I was most recently a volunteer with the Western Canada Cup and the 2016 Summer Games. I enjoy participating in our community and helping out where needed. I look forward to the next 4 years as I serve my first term as councillor. I will be representing the City of Estevan on the St. Joseph's Hospital Board of Directors, The Souris Valley Theatre Board and the Estevan Exhibition Association. My goals for the next 4 years will be to work with the current City Council and the Chief Administration Officer to spend your tax dollars wisely, be as transparent as possible, be available to hear your concerns, and work towards community growth and development. Please feel free to contact me with your concerns or comments at 306-421-7100.

I was born and raised in Estevan. I am married and a father of two girls. I have volunteered coaching broomball and as a Chairman of the board of my church and the Kinsman Club. I have served on the Board of Police Commissioners for the city. Even though Estevan is faced with the challenges of an economic down turn We know we have been through this before and will come out of this an even stronger community. Being a first term councillor, I look forward to learning the ins and outs of the city. We have a great council and city staff to move Estevan into the future. I would like to thank the citizens of Estevan for giving me the privilege of serving you for the next four years.

Living in Estevan my entire life has given me many exciting opportunities to learn, grow, and give back. I joined the board of directors for United Way Estevan in 2005 at the age of 17, a position I still hold today. From 2007 to 2010 I produced Estevan Idol, I chaired the board of directors for the Estevan Bible Camp for two years during their massive rebuild following the flood of 2011, and more recently worked as the sponsorship coordinator for the 2016 Saskatchewan Summer Games. I have always been a strong community advocate and volunteer, and I love being a part of the exciting momentum Estevan
is building.
