Message From The Mayor

Mayor’s Message

I am very excited to be the Mayor of Claresholm.

I have lived in Claresholm for over 40 years. I was married here, and my three sons were born in Claresholm. They were raised here, went to school here, played sports here. Our family loves Claresholm. Claresholm is a wonderful community to raise your children. My wife and I have always volunteered in many different organizations. We have always felt it was important to give back to the community.

Claresholm has so much to offer. Wonderful schools and teachers. Health care that is unbelievable for a town this size. A thriving volunteer Fire Department. Facilities like our Arena, Curling Rink, Community Centre, Daycare and Play School, Indoor Pool, Golf Course and Tennis Courts. 

Claresholm has so many wonderful active, giving volunteer organizations!! We have several wonderful events and celebrations facilitated by our many wonderful volunteers. Canada Day, Fair Days, Old Fashioned Christmas and Winterfest to name a few. WHERE COMMINUTY TAKES ROOT!! So much to celebrate!

My primary focus will be on actively pursing and attracting new commercial / industrial businesses to Claresholm. We do need to expand our commercial / industrial land base to be able to bring in new businesses. This will be a big job. Housing is another priority. Council and administration is actively working very hard and making progress on this right now. This takes planning and hard work, but we are up for it!!

Lastly I would like to welcome all newcomers to Claresholm. You have chosen a great community to live in.
