RM of Cornwallis Coun. Heather Dalgleish will seek the position of reeve in the upcoming election.

Dalgleish is a lifelong resident of the RM, and for the past six years has been deputy reeve on the municipal council.

"I know what the role entails, I’m well aware," she said.

"I’ve worked very closely with Reg (Atkinson) since he’s been on as (reeve) and after very serious, six-month deliberation … I’ve decided I’m going to seek the position."

Reeve Reg Atkinson announced early this year that he would be retiring from politics at the end of this term. He has held the position since the 2008 byelection.

Dalgleish was acclaimed to council in 2006 and re-elected in 2010. She lives in the Sprucewoods area.

Dalgleish says there are some issues and challenges that the council needs to continue to work on in the next term.

"I want to make sure that we continue on the path that we’ve kind of established," she said.

"And just continue dealing with the issues that we know we have."

Most recently, there have been flooding problems that the municipality has had to deal with, and Dalgleish says she is "well experienced" from the 2011 flood.

Other issues on the table include water supply in the village of Chater and municipal waste collection in Sprucewoods.

"These things have been going on for many years. We’ve made some headway and we’re getting a plan together as how we’re going to deal with them," she said. "So I’d … like to see us continue on those paths."

Manitoba votes on Oct. 22.
