City by-election coverage

Submitted by Byron King

Some of you might recognize my name or face from when I used to officiate minor hockey or when Wetaskiwin used to have a real local community cable TV channel and radio station and I appeared weekly on them to promote what was happening in recreation in the city.

Those days, like our locally run cable TV and radio stations are long gone and I no longer work for the City of Wetaskiwin but I still live in the community because I like the community and now I want to directly contribute to it again in a different capacity by being on council.

I am running for council to make Wetaskiwin the best community it can be. Whether it be the local economy, infrastructure, safety, amenities, or anything else, many issues need to be addressed in varying degrees to make Wetaskiwin even better than it currently is and to keep it improving over time and I feel I possess the skills, knowledge, and character to help us achieve this goal.

If elected I cannot guarantee how fast I can get things done but what I would guarantee is that you would get my utmost effort in working to make our community better. My work ethic, high standards, attention to detail, and compulsion with completing projects would ensure this. Additionally my experience working in municipal government allows me to better handle the obstacle course that can be bureaucracy (at all levels of government). By knowing how the system(s) work and by working with the various levels of civil service, I can get things done.

I respect your time and your privacy so I haven’t been phoning you, knocking on your doors, cluttering your mail with campaign propaganda, or hanging around public places making you feel awkward. I have also resisted the urge to place campaign signs all over the city as I feel those detract from the beauty of the community. Instead I have a Facebook page (Vote Byron King- please check it out if you haven’t) where I have been posting my thoughts and opinions on issues on a daily basis and back on the 26th of August I hosted a meet and greet session at Boston Pizza.

I would appreciate your vote but more importantly, please vote. It doesn’t take long and it shows you also care about our city.
