Lacombe County has a new reeve and deputy reeve following an organizational meeting last Thursday.
Division 4 Councillor Paula Law assumed the reeve’s chair after taking her Oath of Office from County Commissioner Terry Hager. She expressed thanks to council for its support and pledged to perform her duties in a fair and straightforward manner.
“I would like to express my sincere thanks for the continued support from Division 4 this past election,” Law said in a media release. “Congratulations to all councillors in Lacombe County who were acclaimed or elected. I would also like to thank my fellow councillors for their support, trust and confidence in electing me to the position of reeve. I look forward to my new responsibilities and commit to working together for all of Lacombe County to maintain the high standards set by my predecessors.”
Following Law’s election and swearing in, Division 2 Councillor Brenda Knight was elected as Deputy Reeve.
“I am honoured to have been elected for a second term as a county councillor and to be chosen by my fellow councillors for the office of deputy reeve,” Knight said. “Our council is a strong team committed to providing quality leadership while serving the residents of Lacombe County. I look forward to carrying out my new responsibilities and will work hard to maintain the quality of life that citizens of Lacombe County enjoy and deserve.”
