The brand new Council for the City of Chestermere has officially started their four year term.
Mayor Marshall Chalmers, Councillor Laurie Bold, Councillor Cathy Burness, Councillor Mel Foat, Councillor Ritesh Narayan, Councillor Yvette Wagner and Councillor Michelle Young took their oaths of office on Monday, October 23 to officially begin their service as Chestermere’s new Council.
“We are eager to get started on the priorities communicated to us by the residents of Chestermere,” said Mayor Marshall Chalmers. “We have already begun our orientation process and are ready to get to work.”
As no incumbents ran in the 2017 municipal election, the City was certain to have a new Mayor and Council for this term. Twenty candidates ran in the election and 4878 Chestermere residents came out to vote nearly doubling the voter turnout from the 2013 election.
