Norm Seatter posted yesterday on the Slave Lake and Area Community Info Board stating he is running for MD Council.

"After a lot of discussions, prodding and contemplation, I filed the nomination papers today for MD council. The old saying 'either put up or shut up' is true. If you feel that things can be better, then step up and try to help the process.
I'm looking forward to meeting with voters in the Slave Lake area to discuss the issues that matter to them, and to share ideas on how together we can make the entire MD and area stronger and attractive to development and diversify our economic base."
