Residents of the Town of Bruderheim will be heading to the polls on November 2nd to fill the vacancy on the Town Council. This special election comes as a result of the resignation of three-term councillor Judy Schueler, who left her position earlier this summer.

Nomination packages for prospective candidates officially became available today at the Town Office, marking the official launch of the electoral process. Aspiring council members have until October 12, 2023, to complete their applications and submit them for consideration. Should more than two individuals step forward to vie for the vacant seat, residents will head to the polls once again on November 3rd for the final decision.

Councillor Schueler, who was first elected to her position in a by-election back in 2015, had become a well-respected and familiar face in the community.

The by-election, scheduled for November 2nd, 2023, is a crucial moment for the Town of Bruderheim. During the 2021 Municipal Election, the town experienced a unique scenario in which all members of the current council were acclaimed to their roles.

This by-election will undoubtedly have a significant impact on the town's governance and its future direction. As earlier this summer Bruderheim Council voted to proceed with the first reading of a by-law that would reduce the size of the council for the next election

Currently, the small town located just Northeast of Edmonton has 6 councillors and 1 mayor elected during each election. The new bylaw will see the size of the council reduced from 6 councillors to 4 councillors and is set to have a public hearing on October 4th.

With nomination packages now available, the community eagerly awaits the announcement of candidates who will step up to take on this important responsibility.
