Meet the Council

Mayor Ross Apperley

I’m honoured to have been elected to my forth term as Mayor. We have a great group of Councillors made up of two incumbents and four new members, who along with our staff are eager to get down to business.

In the coming months you can expect to see the completion of the waste water project, the new water treatment filtration system, and a second water supply line to service the community. Busy times for sure, but it doesn’t end there. Council will also work on some water loop lines and adding some additional fire hydrants.

I’m married to Linda and we have two adult girls Rachelle and Kiana who are both in the medical profession. When time permits, I can be found in my shop working on various projects. I encourage you while in our community to take the time to visit our “Walk to Remember “ walking path and learn the rich Carnduff history.
I have served at the pleasure of the residents of Carnduff for the past 26 yrs and it has been an honour .

Deputy Mayor Joel Purves

I was born and raised in Alida. After graduation I took a pre-employment piping trades course at the Brandon Community College. I then moved to Weyburn to complete my Red Seal Journeymen ticket in plumbing and gas fitting. That is where I met my wife Amanda. In 2005 we decided to make Carnduff our home and start our own business, J P’s Plumbing & Heating. We have three children Corey, Chance and Riley which keeps us busy with all of their activities. When we are not doing that, we enjoy the outdoors as much as possible. I especially like to be out fishing.
I was elected to council in 2016, I felt I was at a point in my career and life that I had the time to commit to town councillor duties. I really enjoy seeing how things operate and having a place to voice my opinion. My job allows me to see things from different perspectives which I believe brings value to town council and committee meetings. I am excited to see our community grow, stay a great place to live and raise a family.

Councilor Kelly Exner

I grew upon on a farm south of Alida, and after graduating from high school in Oxbow I studied Business Administration at Red River Community College in Winnipeg.  I have lived the majority of my adult life in the town of Carnduff. I was employed by Saskatchewan Crop Insurance Corporation for 4 years and then went on to work for an oilfield construction company for over 23 years. Both farming and oil are important industries in our area, and I feel that my background and experience helps me to relate to the people who in our community.

My main goal during this first term is to learn as much as possible about the current infrastructure and operations of the town, and to help plan for future improvements and developments.  Our town offers a lot to its residents, however we’ve seen a concerning decline in the oilfield over the last few years which has impacted the prosperity of our community. My wish is to see the town’s homes all full again and the businesses thriving, keeping all of these services here that I personally have benefited from over the years. 

I live in Carnduff with my husband Don, who moved here in 1994 from Regina. He too has embraced the comforts and advantages you get from small community living.  In my spare time I enjoy reading and during the summer you can catch me outside in my garden. 

Councilor Mike Fowler

Following my graduation from Carnduff High School, I have worked various jobs in the oil and gas industry. Since 2006 I have been in the specialty chemical industry and have been in management for the past seven years. Most of my management time has allowed me to open up various offices right in the town of Carnduff and allowed job opportunity for others at a local level which makes me feel proud to be a part of. I’ll share two of the best things about this experience, first off is seeing young people come aboard, start their careers, give them the necessary tools and watch them become successful. Secondly and just as important is watching them grow outside of work, become respected members in society, settle down, get married and start families in Carnduff. These two experiences have fueled my desire to take these learnings past the normal work day and instill them in other areas which is why I made the decision to run for town council.

My wife, Kim and I have three children Avry, Owen and Adley. All are active in the community in various activities which keeps us busy. I usually fill my winters helping coach my son’s hockey team and like to make it to the golf course in the summer as often as I can. Carnduff has given my family so much and now it is time to give back and serve the best I can.

Councilor Mike Pirie

Councilor Linda Powell

I was born and raised in Regina but moved to Carnduff in 1998 with my husband David and 3 daughters as our fairly new business “Powell Autobody” was thriving out here. Little did we know that Carnduff would be where we would call home.
Coming from a big city, we appreciated and loved raising our girls in a small town where they could be involved in any sport they wanted. I spend countless hours involved with figure skating, hockey, 4H, curling and softball with the girls.. and now with the girls all grown, my grandsons have begun their hockey and skating careers in this community as well. My girls, Joey Henrion, Jamie Wilmot and Jenna Powell all live and work here in Carnduff and its really nice to see them all contributing and actively being part of the community as well.
I work full time at our business Powell Autobody here in Carnduff but my true passion is teaching meditation.  I was lucky to be a part of the development of the Carnduff Bark Park, and still sit on that board, which I am so very proud of as it is the nicest off leash dog parks I have been to.
I feel I have been very blessed in my life and I really wanted to give back to this town that welcomed me and my family so many years ago. I am looking forward to serving on council!

Councilor Greg Wall

Though originally from Saskatoon, I was raised in Fillmore, Saskatchewan. Carnduff has been my home for the majority of my adult life. My wife Jodie, and our family are typically quite active in the community. Our three children attended school here and took up many sports and other activities in the area. Luckily, I have worked for the Day family during my years in the area. The value of Vi and Tony's contributions to our community are unbelievable! 

I am honoured to now be serving a second term on Council. I am proud to have been involved with what the previous Council accomplished. We worked hard, with tight budgets, to make many improvements for our citizens. I am very excited to continue working hard towards completion of many large infrastructure projects we have in progress. Further to that, I look forward to tackling some new issues over the next four years, with this new group of Councillors.
