Coaldale Mayor Will Seek Third Term In October Civic Election


COALDALE:  New names and those familiar continue to trickle to the forefront as the October 21st Civic Election moves closer.


Coaldale Mayor Kim Craig has announced he will seek a third term heading up that Town's council. Craig wants to continue working on a number of initiatives that will benefit the community of over 7500 residents. Those initiatives include continuing to improve storm water management within the town which has had issued with neighborhood and street flooding in the past. While a number of strategies have been implemented over the years, he wants to see more aggressive elements incorporated in the future.


Craig is also anxious to build on economic development a strong business base to help take the tax burden off the shoulders of homeowners. He notes, "Coaldale doesn't operate in isolation, so we want to try our best to attract and retain businesses to the town proper but, also to take advantage of all the economic activity in the surrounding area and due to a really good relationship with the County of Lethbridge, I think we can work collaboratively to the benefit of everyone concerned".


Coaldale's current Mayor says an important element in this election with be the fact that there will now be four-year terms instead of the previous three-years, "I get the sense that a number of Councils around Alberta might experience significant turn-over because incumbents not running for re-election and if Coaldale is able to keep a relatively stable Council, with good, experienced leadership at the helm, that will give us a really good advantage".


Craig is not only the Mayor of Coaldale, but is also Chairman of the Southern Alberta Energy from Waste Association, which has more than 70 municipal members and hopes to see a waste-to-energy facility in Southern Alberta sometime in the next five to seven years. By profession, he is a longtime financial advisor, who serves as a director of the Alberta Urban Municipalities Association and believes his experience and connections at the provincial level are valuable to the future of Coaldale.
