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
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.
Councilor Mike Pirie
Councilor Linda Powell
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!
