I had the privilege to work with Lea during my 11 years on Council, and no doubt she will be missed at the office. The one thing I will remember most about working with Lea is her irritability with certain sounds such as, "clicking pens, or tapping your foot on the floor" (things I apparently do when I am talking). The irritability was contagious and also affected the Recreation Director. I don't recall having many conversations with Lea that didn't include the words, "stop clicking your pen," or "stop tapping the floor." Aside from that it was great working with Lea, and I wish her all the best on her retirement.

A by-election has been set for October 20, 2021. I would certainly encourage anyone who has a genuine interest in helping make their community a better place to consider running in the election. To be effective a councils make up should be reflective of the community it serves. Gull Lake's population is very close to 50% men and 50% women, but Town Council has been male dominated for years. It would definitely be a positive for the community to see more women on Council.
