Incumbent councillor Megan Hanson announces run for reelection

The Municipal Election is Oct. 16

Sylvan Lake Town Councillor Megan Hanson has announced her intentions to run for a second term on council.

Hanson made her official announcement on Facebook earlier today, stating it has been an honour to serve on council the past four years.

In Hanson’s statement she says she is asking voters to “once again take a leap of faith” in electing her into office again.

“My message today is similar to what it was four years ago, only now I have a deepened understanding of how to continue to achieve these goals,” Hanson said.

As a mother, Hanson hopes to continue to make the town a positive place to raise a family and be part of a thriving community.

Hanson said the choice to run for reelection came after lengthy discussions with her own family.

“I desire Sylvan Lake to be a great town…” she said emphasizing the needs for open communication and actively seeking feedback.

Hanson also believes the Town of Sylvan Lake should be a welcoming place to visitors while encouraging thriving business.

She hopes to continue working towards her goals of making Sylvan Lake a better place if elected to another term.

“There is never a shortage of work to do, change that needs to take place, but I am looking forward to the opportunity where I can continue to contribute my skills to make Sylvan Lake a better place,” said Hanson.

Throughout the campaign process, Hanson looks forward to connecting with the people of Sylvan Lake to discuss what they would like to see along with her visions for the Town.

Candidacy for the municipal election is open until Sept. 18, and nomination forms can be picked up at the Municipal Government Building.

Election Day for all municipal elections in Alberta is Oct. 16.

“I love this community, and have truly enjoyed playing a part in the direction that we are heading,” said Hanson.
