Celebrating International Women’s Day

In honour of International Women’s Day, we sat down with the women who were elected to Town of Bonnyville Council to get to know them a little better.

This is Coun. Kayla Blanchette’s first term on Town Council. She is a married mother of two who has been active in the Bonnyville community for years.

Question: Why did you decide to run for Town Council?

Coun. Blanchette: “I was asked this question many times during campaign time and my response was always, “You vote in elections every four years, but when you’re elected to represent your community in local politics, a community that you have a strong passion for, you get to wake up and vote every day about what kind of community you want to live in, and that’s truly a privilege.”
