“I plan to submit my papers next month and I will be going around to see if there is interest in having me run for and become mayor of this community.”

Swanson was asked if running for mayor is any kids of statement on how the present Mayor David Stead is doing on the job. “Not at all and I think David does a great job and is a really nice guy. I don’t know if he is going to run and I hope he does because it would be great to have an election. It’s a personal thing and has nothing to do with David or any of council because I think we have an excellent council. I just feel it’s a time for me to show some leadership.”

Swanson feels that over the past few years she has shown leadership and will continue to do that and she hopes it is as head of council for Boissevain-Morton.

David Stead is still weighing his options and hasn’t said whether or not he plans to seek re-election.

Voters head to the polls in late October.
