Throughout the election this past October, we got to learn more about each candidate. But there was still so much we wanted to learn about the young man who stood up to take on an important role in our community.

The first thirty days of this local government, on your behalf, have been a steep learning curve. The vertical wall of learning so far has included; appreciating the health and condition of our municipal assets, our current infrastructure deficit, the amount of water loss we experience due to ageing infrastructure, upgrades needed in our sewer lagoons, a public works building condemned, a public engagement framework trying to gain support, setting service levels, solid waste management, and of course - snow removal. These are just a few of the issues on our radar.

For six years Shelby has been documenting her children’s lives. Squeals of delight and sprinklers and cannon balls. It’s all there, typed out on yellowing clips of folded paper with a stamp-sized picture of her face at the top.
