All-Candidates Forum in Swift Current, Oct. 10, 2012

Written by 

The 11 candidates running for six council seats in the City of Swift Current had an opportunity to state their case to residents during an all-candidates forum on Oct. 10 at the Living Sky Casino's Sky Centre. The event was hosted by the Swift Current and District Chamber of Commerce.

Mayor Jerrod Schafer, who has been acclaimed, made a few opening remarks. The candidates each received an opportunity to make position statements. This was followed by a question and answer session that gave residents an opportunity to raise issues of interest to them. The civic election will take place on Oct. 24.

The candidates were seated behind two tables. Sitting at the table on the left (from left to right) are: George Bowditch, Gord Budd, Tim Bugera, Joe Collinson, Pat Friesen and Dan Martens. Seated at the table on the right (from left to right) are: Keleah Ostrander, Denis Perrault, Ryan Plewis, Jayson Sletten and Ron Toles.
