Lacombe voters are out today to decide who will represent their interests in the community

Lacombe voters are out today to decide who will represent their interests in the community.

With school board, City council and mayoral positions all up for grabs—the race this year is as heated as it has ever been.

Outgoing Mayor Steve Christie said it is important for people to get out and ensure their voices are heard.

“In light of November 11th coming up, a lot of people died for our rights and freedoms and it is our right to choose who will make decisions in our communities, our province and our country.”

Norma Mathies said it was very important for her to vote because it gives her the opportunity to say what she thinks.

Joyce Fitzgerald said it was her civic duty to vote in this year’s election and Vickie Cappies said it was important for her to have her selections heard.

Andrea Collins said it is important for her to have a say in her community and Wendy Jorgenson said you cannot complain about who got in if you didn’t vote.

Patricia Ludwig said voting is a privilege and many countries aren’t afforded the opportunity to do so.

Polls for the 2017 Lacombe Municipal Election close at 8 p.m. tonight. The mayoral election will be decided between Grant Creasey and Peter Bouwsema.
