A near capacity crowd attended the Election Forum at the Pomeroy Inns & Suites at Olds College on Monday October 7th to hear from the acclaimed Town of Olds councillors and to ask questions of the three candidates for mayor. The mayoral candidates were the incumbent Judy Dahl and challengers Art Baker and Shirley Shultz. Jordan Cleland, a vice president of Olds College moderated the event which saw the mayoral candidates bring forward their campaign platforms.
Topics and issues presented by the candidates included traffic on highways 27 and 2a, train safety, spending and transparency in communications from the town office. You can take our poll at www.octv.ca and tell us what topic you think is important in this election.
