AUMA Conference

On November 22-25th there will the the Alberta Urban Municipalities Association conference in Edmonton. I will be in attendance and look forward to meeting new people from other municipalities and learning all sorts of new things that will be useful in my tenure as city councilor. Since it is Grey Cup week as well, there will be a Tailgate Party on one evening at which we are recommended to wear a football jersey. So in this case – GO STAMPS GO!!

The first two weeks!

Since the election, I have jumped right into the work needed for this position as city councilor.  All the necessary preliminary coordination, information gathering and sharing is underway.  I attended the new council orientation on October 22nd held in conjunction with about 8 other municipalities in Blackfalds.  Very good information to understand process etc.  Our own council orientation for the City of Lacombe will occur this Saturday, November 6th.  This will be a good for all the new and returning council members to connect with the desired processes of how council will run.  For anyone needing to contact me at any time, feel free to leave an email at pbouwsema@lacombe.ca This is my new email address from the city for use for all council business.

My first council meeting will be on November 8th at which time I will be swore into office. This is an exciting time for our community and I look forward to serving it in a new capacity as your representative on city council.
