Sitting Councillor Darcy Zaharia has announced he will seek re-election this fall.
“I have decided to run for a second term as Councillor for the City of Yorkton,” said Zaharia who was elected to Council for his first term the last time the City went to the polls. “I thoroughly enjoyed the learning process and would like the opportunity to continue learning while serving our great community.”
Zaharia said he feels he can contribute to Council moving forward based on his experience, and willingness to listen to people.
“I believe the communication and interaction I have had with community members has allowed me to often be a voice of reason on council and my willingness to ask and answer tough questions is appreciated by our taxpayers.”
Making sure what Council does makes sense requires questions, suggested Zaharia.
“I plan to continue asking questions and doing my best to ensure transparency of city operations and fiscal responsibility in all proceedings.”
Zaharia said he was also influenced to run again because voters have been so supportive og his efforts the past four years.
“The overwhelming support I’ve received from community members, family, friends, fellow council members and city staff over the past four years along with my passion for all things about the City of Yorkton, has led to my decision to run again,” he said.
“I look forward to continuing to make Yorkton where good things happen.”
Nomination papers may be filed with the Returning Officer during regular business hours, Monday-to Friday from Sept. 21 to Oct. 6
Yorkton goes to the polls Monday, Nov. 9.
