Didsbury councillors outline election plans

Two councillors, mayor say they will run again

DIDSBURY - Sitting Didsbury councillors have outlined their respective plans to run or not run in the Oct. 2021 municipal election.

The nomination period began on Jan. 1 and will conclude on Sept. 20. There is one mayor and six council positions in Didsbury.

First-term mayor Rhonda Hunter says she plans to seek another term.

Councillor Curt Engel, first elected in 2017, says he plans to let his name stand again in October.

“At this point it is my intent to run for a second term,” said Engel.

Dorothy Moore was a councillor in 1995-98, Didsbury mayor from 2001 to 2007, and again as councillor starting in 2017. She says she has not decided whether to run again in 2021. 

“It’s too early to declare and I am focused on the considerable work that remains to be done,” said Moore.

Councillor Mel Crothers says he too hasn’t decided whether he will seek re-election.

First-term councillor Bill Windsor says he will seek another term, although he doesn’t plan to start campaigning until later summer.

“As an active councillor I still have work to do,” said Windsor.

Councillor Erhard Poggemiller says he hasn’t decided whether he will run again.

“I will make a decision later on,” said Poggemiller.

Councillor John Baswick was not available for comment.
