The Town of St. Walburg would like to introduce the 3 Candidates for the Councillor position.
Travis Peterson was born and raised in St.Walburg, SK and had purchased his first home before the age of 22. He has since then started his own family in what he considers “home”. He has always tried to be an active member of the community, and is excited to have his children experience the same “Small Town” environment that he grew up in and learned from.
Travis graduated from St.Walburg School in 2009 and received his Grade 12 Diploma. Now, he has 1 child who has started her schooling in St.Walburg School and with another that will start within the next couple years.
Travis then moved on to working, and building his life within the community. He had 6 prior years with one company from the age of 18 until 24 and has since then switched careers closer to home, and is now working for 4Ward Trucking as a fluid hauler. Travis has been known for his loyalty and extreme work ethic, and would love to be able to show the community the positive changes he can bring to St.Walburg, and be able to be the voice of his fellow community members.
Thank you so much for your time you took to read this Bio. I hope we can work together to make this community stronger than what it already is.
Jamie Hallett was born in December of 1977 to loving parents Keith and Kathy Hallett of the Edmonton area. As childhood progresses as they usually do, in the summer of 1988 Jamie and younger sister Kelly had the first opportunity to visit Bright Sand Lake for vacation; in addition visiting the lovely town of St. Walburg.
As childhood progressed through to young adulthood Jamie enjoyed several sporting activities which included: football, soccer, rugby and fishing. In thus he has started his family at a young age and is blessed with 3 beautiful children, one of which is currently attending the St. Walburg high-school. Jamie is also very proud of his eldest that just graduated high school as he did in 1996 in Sherwood park. He looks forward to his youngest carrying on the mantle in engineering like his father has who graduated from chemical engineering in 2004.
As Jamie’s career progressed he found himself working within multiple government agencies, municipal authorities and volunteering within his communities. Jamie has always tried to make it to Bright Sand as an annual summer event. As the economic downturn turn occurred Jamie ended uprooting his family for a more familiar place that has always been home. Moving to St. Walburg in June of 2015.
As a candidate for council of St. Walburg he would like to see:
– Improvements in water quality
– Updates and changes to specific by-laws
– Increase family activities/events for the town of St. Walburg
In addition to this, overall a better economic diversification for the town of St. Walburg.
Bobby Domes ~ I grew up in the area on an acreage by Turtleford and growing up spent many hours volunteering and was the Vice President of their Ag Society. I began working at the SLGA Liquor Store in St. Walburg in 2002 when I was 19 years old and have continued with that career path ever since. I have volunteered on many clubs and organizations in St. Walburg and in the area over the years; I am the Secretary for the St. Walburg Curling Club and have sat on the committee for the St. Walburg Festival of Trees. I have volunteered at events such as the Knight of Columbus Dinner Theatre in St Walburg, the St. Walburg Fair and the Wild Blueberry Festival and recently have joined the Chamber of Commerce. I am also the President of the Spruce Lake Community Centre and am involved their annual Dinner Theatre every spring.
In 2007 I decided to make St. Walburg my permanent home and began plans to build a house. Construction began in the spring of 2008 and the entire project was built by myself and my parents. In 2012, SLGA offered me the opportunity of full time employment as manager of their Lloydminster location, I accepted and have commuted ever since. With the recent announcement by Government to close a number of SLGA Liquor Stores, I will soon be unemployed due to the store closures and no longer commuting. I intend to return to find work in the St. Walburg area and to continue my volunteerism and betterment of the St. Walburg area which is why I am contending for a place on town council.
