Lacombe County councillors supported the status quo when electing their reeve and deputy reeve at an organizational meeting Oct. 23.

Ken Wigmore, councillor for Division 5, was re-elected reeve for a one year term. He’s been reeve for the past two years.

“I look forward to working with council and staff over the next year and completing the projects that council has initiated,” Wigmore stated. “I feel honoured to be elected again by my fellow councillors as their reeve and I thank them for their continued support. I’m proud to work with such an excellent and dedicated group of councillors. I look forward to our future challenges and will do my best to live up to the expectations of the residents of Lacombe County.”

Following Wigmore’s election and swearing-in, Division 4 Council Paula Law was re-elected as deputy reeve for the next year. Law has held the position since early in 2011.

“I am pleased to have the support of council once again, and look forward to another year of service to our residents in an open, fair and responsible manner,” she said.
