After five terms, Bruderheim councillor Shelley Ross is calling it a career.
Originally elected in a by-election in 2002, she's overseen many changes and watched town grow from 1,202 in 2002 to 1,308 in 2016's census.
"It's been interesting to see ones that were kids when I first started, or teens, now they're all parents and their kids are still staying here and going to our school," said Ross.
She's seen many councillors, mayors and CAOs come and go.
"This has been a very eye opening and wonderful experience for me, I enjoyed this, I've had fun with it, it's been nice getting to know everybody."
It's plain to see Ross's passion for her town and her many accomplishments while on council.
"This fire hall would be one of the biggest accomplishments," explained Ross. "Growing in some of the recreational programs like the Akido program started after I got started here and that was way back when, it was with the town then."
Her advice for incoming councillors: "Smile, don't let it be personal if someone's yelling at you and enjoy, have fun, look out for the community, that's what we're here for."
Up next for Ross? Retirement to enjoy her grandkids, relax and "do my own thing."
