The Mayor of Yorkton is thrilled at the job done by City Councillor Randy Goulden at the SUMA Convention in Saskatoon.
Bob Maloney notes that she served as Interim President of the organization from early November, until this week.
“Being involved in the board really gave me a picture of how hard she has worked on behalf of SUMA.” Maloney said.
Maloney was also pleased the former Lieutenant Governor of Saskatchewan, and Saltcoats Town Councillor Gordon Barnhart, was elected as the new President of the Saskatchewan Urban Municipalities Association.
“We look forward to working with him on the board of SUMA,” he said, “I know he’s excited about it.”
Yorkton’s mayor also pointed to a statement made by Premier Brad Wall, at the SUMA Convention, on the Saskatchewan budget, which is going to show a deficit.
“Resource revenue are down, and that’s a big part of the government coffers…when resource revenues are down, that means the province is going to struggle to meet budgets.”
However, Wall said that Saskatchewan’s economy was in a solid position as we entered 2017.
