Plante seeking second term as town councillor

Dale Plante has decided to seek a second term as town councillor rather than run for the mayor’s position.

Dale Plante has decided to seek a second term as town councillor rather than run for the mayor’s position.

“This decision is based on my conviction that in order to maximize the wealth of experience I have gained over the past three years on council, and to most effectively use the trust and influence I have gained through it to the future benefit of Sylvan Lake, a position on the council team is the strongest choice,” he wrote on his Facebook page ‘Dale Plante for Council’.

In an interview Monday he said he’s endorsing and getting behind Sean McIntyre’s run for the top elected position. Plante feels McIntyre will be able to engage younger people and get them involved in the election process and town politics.

“Sean’s leadership, vision and commitment to Sylvan Lake is contagious and unquestionable,” Plante wrote. “His ability to connect, engage and to mobilize the young electorate of our town is crucial as we plan for the future.”

Planted added, “My passion for this town is unwavering and my full expectation for a bright future for our town is non-negotiable. If re-elected to council I will continue to be totally engaged in every aspect of this town and endeavour to be a strong voice of conviction on the council team.”
