Mayor Kate Patrick
I completed all of my schooling in Mayerthorpe and after a 15 year career with the TD Bank moved back to Mayerthorpe in 1975 when I married Norman and managed Patrick's Transport Ltd. until we sold it in 2004. Our 2 sons, Jim and Scott still reside in the Mayerthorpe area and we have one grandson Norman Jr. I have assissted many organizations with grant applications and have had many years of experience on both the board and executive of the Mayerthorpe Golf and the Mayerthorpe Curling Club. In 2005 I became the third honorary life time member in the history of the Mayerthorpe Curling Club. Besides being an active golfer and part time curler I enjoy gardening, flowers and spending time with family and friends. Mayerthorpe is a community progressively moving forward for which I say I am proud to be part of in keeping up our appearance and promoting future growth.
Councillor Bernie Jogola
I was born and raised in Mayerthorpe and have lived here for my entire life. I am married to my lovely wife Shelley and have two sons age ten and twelve. Following high school, I attended the Northern Alberta Institute of Technology and received a finance diploma. From there, I started working with West Fraser Mills and progressed through the ranks until I was the Planer Mill Superintendent. I held that role for four years and then moved on to Quality Control. I am honest, loyal, and dedicated. Moving this town forward is my priority in the years to come.
Councillor Pat Hagman
I'm happy to be on Council and look forward to acting on behalf of the citizens to enhance the quality of life here. I am also looking forward to working with the rest of Council and Mayor Patrick as a team, committed to the best interests of our town and our future.
Thank you for your support.
Councillor Glen Wilcox
I retired just prior to the Municipal Election in October 2004 after a teaching career of nearly 35 years, mostly in Mayerthorpe and Sangudo. My wife, Maureen and I, have lived in Mayerthorpe for about 35 years and raised three daughters there. My past community contributions included being a founding member of the Mayerthorpe Public Library (and Chair of the board for several years), and being active in FCSS, Recreation and Interagency groups/committeees. Having two young grandsons living in Mayerthorpe has increased my awareness of the need to provide a sustainable community with facilities that encourage young families to move here and want to remain.
Councillor Pat Burns
I was born February 4, 1952 in Edmonton Alberta to Pat and Lil Burns. I went to school in Edmonton until the end of grade six. At this time the family moved to the Sangudo area where I went to school from Grade seven to ten. I transferred to Mayerthorpe from Sangudo and graduated there. I have lived in Mayerthorpe on and off for around thirty years. I have built three homes for myself, my spouse Tiny (Doris) Williams and my 3 kids. I have 4 grandkids as well. I am a journeyman carpenter and have my boiler ticket. I was a gas plant operator for Canadian Occidental Petroleum for 4 1/2 years until they downsized. I have worked as a contract carpenter and plumber for Gemco Industrial Trailer for 16 1/2 years. I have owned and operated my own construction business PTB Contracting for 30 years. I have also worked for the Town of Mayerthorpe installing water meters in the Spring of 2013.
I currently volunteer my time as the Vice President and Membership Chairman for the Wildwood and District Rod and Gun Club. In my spare time I like to hunt, fish, play poker, play pool with the residents at the Pleasant View Lodge and spend time with my Family.
Councillor Sandy Morton
I am a wife and mother who has been happily married for 39 years and my husband Rob and I have one son, Drew. I am a retired teacher of 39 years who worked at a profession I loved! I am a graduate of the University of Western Ontario (B.A. B.Ed.). I taught in Ontario, Africa(Lesotho) and Jasper. Twenty eight of my teaching years were in Sangudo. (David Ovans Elementary School and Sangudo Community School). I have lived in the Sangudo/Mayerthorpe area for 28 years and have been a resident of the town of Mayerthorpe for the last 10 years. I retired in 2014 and have been travelling with my husband, Rob , visiting my son in Vancouver and fitting in some substitute teaching at Elmer Elson.
Being a town councillor is definitely a learning curve for me and one that I am very interested in pursuing. The long term welfare of our community is my first priority! I look forward to learning more about representing people of the community, helping to make policies that have been well researched and evaluated and showing stewardship to maintain financial integrity and transparency. I am very interested in keeping the youth in our community and helping encourage young families to stay in our community to raise their children in a safe, progressive town. Another of my passions is in the welfare and interests of seniors as I fall into that category myself and will spend my retirement in Mayerthorpe.
I have many interests and hobbies including travelling, music, reading, writing, boating, camping, loving dogs, live theater, cooking, and gardening. I look forward to the challenge of being a town councillor and hope that my enthusiasm and interest can help make a difference!
