and Wheatland County rushed to drop off their nomina-
tion papers for the 2017 elections, on Monday.
Offering a helping hand Sept. 18 marked the last day to submit all paperwork
for a chance to become mayor, councillor, or school
board trustee.
The Town of Strathmore experienced no surprises this
Page 26 week, with numbers mirroring those of previous munic-
ipal elections.
Eleven individuals finalized their decision to run for
councillor with another two campaigning for the mayoral
position.
The turnout is similar to last election where 13 resi-
dents participated to be elected councillor and two in-

Several other incumbent names – Denise Peterson, Ste-

be found on the ballot again, together with seven other
residents ready to challenge for one of six spots available
for the position of councillor in Strathmore.
These include Peter Landry, Gordon Porteous, Tari
Cockx, Melanie Corbiell, Jason Montgomery, Lorraine
Bauer and John Hilton-O’Brien.

“There’s been a lot of interest in each
division,” said Terry Tower, returning of-
ficer for elections for Wheatland County.
“It’s nice to see because it’s always
good to see an election, it never hurts
anything. Voter apathy is terrible. We
only have 25 per cent of eligible voters
that vote on an average, which is pretty
sad when everybody has the option of

exclusively at
voting.”
The Village of Standard, the Village
of Hussar, and the Village of Rocky-
ford also received their nominations, all
three councils resulting in acclamations
– or sole candidates.
Standard’s council remained un-
changed, with Mayor Alan Larsen at
the helm, joined by Deputy Mayor Joe
Pederson, and councillors Adam Som-
merfeldt, Martin Gauthier, and Brandon
Dufalla.
The Village of Rockyford also noticed
little change, as Darcy Burke returns as
mayor, along with Deputy Mayor Dalia
Cheshire, and fellow councillors Bill
Goodfellow and Leah Smith. Councillor
Martin Kelly did not run for re-election

• Delays or schedule changes: Even the best
contractors cannot control every aspect of the

to do portions of the work. Materials may not
