Long-time Lacombe County Reeve Paula Law announced today that she would not seek re-election in 2021.
Reeve Law has represented Division 4 of Lacombe County for 11 years and, during that time, has acted as councillor, deputy reeve and reeve.
“I feel honoured and privileged to serve as Division 4 councillor and reeve for Lacombe County, and this decision was not an easy one to make,” said Reeve Law.
“From my fellow councillors to the staff at Lacombe County – this has been one of the best experiences of my life, but I feel that it is my time to move on and let someone with new ideas, thoughts and energies guide Lacombe County in the years to come.”
Reeve Law was first elected to Lacombe County Council in 2010 and was appointed as deputy reeve in 2011.
In 2013, she was appointed Lacombe County reeve and has been elected by Lacombe County councillors for eight terms.
During her time on council, Paula sat on numerous committees and boards, including chairperson of the Ag Service Board, vice-share for the Lacombe Foundation, and past chair of Lacombe Regional Tourism.
Her decision not to seek re-election coincides with long-time councillors Deputy Reeve Ken Wigmore (Division 5) and Councillor Keith Stephenson (Division 6).
“It is the perfect time for new visionaries to join the Lacombe County Council and to make a true difference to their community,” she said.
