Seeking a third term, an experienced member of council is running again for a sense of familiarity in the chambers.
Susan McLean Tady is looking for her third term as a member of town council with seven years of experience as a councillor for Battleford. She also previously served eight for the town of Denholm.
“It’s an interest I have. I’ve got experience working in the municipal sector and I feel that it’s really important to give back to the community,” she said.
McLean Tady also worked for Town Hall for seven and a half years before her current position as a payroll officer for the Living Sky School Division.
Continuity and keeping some familiar faces around Town Hall was a big reason for McLean Tady to run again for a third term.
“I think the main thing I’m trying to keep in mind this time is continuity on council,” McLean Tady said. “We’ve got a new chief administrative officer on staff and we’ve lost all of our senior management over the last year and a half.”
In seeking re-election McLean Tady wanted to continue on council and help lead Battleford into the future, especially in terms of growth and sustainability of business.
“We’re taking the town in a new direction. It’s interesting and I just look forward to continuing some of the major projects we have going,” she said.
