Eagle Lake First Nation’s Band Chief and Councillors will have another two-year term ahead of them.
Chief Arnold Gardner and Councillors Trisha Kavanaugh, Sheldon Adams and Lloyd Napish were all re-elected following the community’s election night last week.
This will be the third consecutive term for this batch of councillors. They still have a while to catch up to Chief Gardner, who was first elected as Chief in 1990. He’s been leading the community for over 30 years now.
“My goal is to ensure growth and sustainability for the community and to continue to support the members by overcoming challenges and continuing to practice the teachings I have learned to help our community live a successful and healthy life,” writes Chief Gardner.
The Eagle Lake community is roughly 25km southwest of Dryden, with a total registered population of 630 as of April 2016.
