Another name will be on the ballots this fall.
Stuart McGowan will be running for a seat on the Fort Saskatchewan City Council in the upcoming municipal election.
Originally from Ontario, McGowan has been a resident of Fort Saskatchewan for almost 17 years.
"I feel I have a lot to offer the community," said McGowan. "I want to get involved and help make any difference that I possibly can to make Fort Saskatchewan continue to be the great place that it is to live and work."
He wants council to focus on major infrastructure decisions by reviewing the needs and wants of citizens, along with how taxes will be affected.
"I like to feel that I'm very approachable," added McGowan. "I'm willing to talk to anyone about any topic about anything concerns that they have about what's going on in the city."
McGowan has been involved with multiple groups in the Fort such as the Historical Society, Sheeptown Players, the Multicultural Association and the Public Library Board.
