Four of seven Lacombe County councillors won’t be campaigning this fall after they were acclaimed to their positions when nominations closed Monday at noon.

Dana Kreil (Division 7), Keith Stephenson (Division 6), Ken Wigmore (Division 5) and Paula Law (Division 4) were all acclaimed since they were the only candidates to file nomination papers for their divisions. All are current councillors

Kreil will be entering her second term, Stephenson his third term, Wigmore his fourth term and Law her second term. Stephenson was the only councillor acclaimed in 2010.

At the east end of the county, four term Division 1 councillor Rod McDermand is being challenged by Ossie Eggenschwiler. Division 2 councillor Brenda Knight is running against Stephen Holt and Tony Jeglum to retain her position. Knight is seeking her second term.

The only incumbent stepping down is Cliff Soper who has represented Division 3. Running for that position are David Powell and Barb Shepherd.

Elections in the three contested divisions take place Oct. 21.

Lacombe County’s reeve is selected by the winning councillors at an organizational meeting following the election. Ken Wigmore has held that position during the past term.
