I AM ELLEN UNRUH AND WAS BORN AND RAISED ON A FARM IN HOLLAND.

I STUDIED BUSINESS ADMINISTRATION AND MY HUSBAND AND I RECENTLY RETIRED FROM OWNING AND OPERATING A LOCAL BUSINESS FOR OVER 40 YEARS.

FOR THE PAST 8 YEARS, I HAVE BEEN THE COUNCILOR FOR DIVISION 7, REPRESENTING NOT ONLY THE AGRICULTURE PRODUCERS, RANCHERS, BUSINESSES AND ACREAGE OWNERS AROUND THE VILLAGE OF ROSEMARY BUT ALL RESIDENTS IN THE COUNTY OF NEWELL

I SERVED 2 TERMS ON THE BROOKS AND DISTRICT HEALTH FOUNDATION AND SERVE CURRENTLY ON THE ROSEMARY AGRICULTURE SOCIETY BOARD. ALSO OVER THE YEARS I HAVE BEEN INVOLVED WITH OTHER COMMUNITY ORGANIZATIONS.

IN THE PAST TERMS, I TRIED MY BEST TO CARRY OUT THE WISHES OF THE CONSTITUANTS.

I LIKE TO TAKE THIS OPPORTUNITY TO THANK THE MANY RESIDENTS TROUGHOUT THE COUNTY OF NEWELL FOR THEIR ENORMOUS SUPPORT TO KEEP OUR COUNTY A SEPARATE IDENTITY WHILE I WAS THE LONE COUNCILLOR TO VOTE AGAINST THE AMALGAMATION ATTEMPT. HAVING SAID THAT, I AM IN FAVOUR OF SHARED SERVICE AGREEMENTS WITH OUR URBAN MUNICIPALITIES IF IT MAKES ECONOMIC SENSE.

IF I AM RE-ELECTED, I WILL CONCENTRATE ON MAINTAINING OUR CURRENT INFRASTRUCTURE AND SERVICE LEVELS. GIVEN THE CURRENT POLITICAL CLIMATE OF PROVINCIAL CUTBACKS AND DOWNLOADING ON MUNICIPALITIES, I FIND IT PRUDENT FOR A COUNCILOR TO BE FISCALLY RESPONSIBLE.

IN CLOSING, IT HAS BEEN AN HONOR TO REPRESENT THE RESIDENTS IN THE ROSEMARY DIVISION AND WILL CONTINUE FOR THE NEXT TERM, IF YOU SO CHOOSE.

THANK YOU AND STAY WELL.
