Waddell looks to 'take it up a notch' on Cornwallis council

Mike Waddell has thrown his hat into the ring to represent Ward 1 in the RM of Cornwallis.

Waddell, 44, announced in a press release yesterday that said he’ll advocate for “common sense in government, removing red tape and being accountable to the taxpayer.”

Married with four children, Waddell is currently selling manufactured homes and is also the chaplain for the Brandon Wheat Kings.

Waddell said the RM’s roots are and always should be in agriculture, but that there is room to branch out “responsibly” into other sectors.

“Cornwallis has a ton of opportunity ahead of it, and I’m grateful to the current and previous councils that have laid some great groundwork, but I believe it’s time to take it up a notch,” he said.

“The RM of Cornwallis has land, has opportunity and has designated development areas that it’s time we start utilizing.”

Cornwallis will be divided into two wards for the upcoming October municipal election, with two councillors in each ward elected at large.

Waddell will run in what amounts to the north ward, where three other candidates — incumbent Kurt Wasserberg, and newcomers James Crang and Kristy Forrestall — are also running.

In Ward 2 there are two declared candidates — incumbent Bob Brown and newcomer Karen Burton.

Current reeve Reg Atkinson is retiring and so far only Heather Dalgleish, who is currently the deputy reeve, has put her name forward.
