Mearns won’t seek an­other coun­cil term

Lethbridge Herald - - HOMETOWN NEWS - J.W. Sch­narr LETHBRIDGE HERALD

City coun­cil mem­ber Brid­get Mearns will not be run­ning for re-elec­tion.

Mearns made the an­nounce­ment on her Face­book page Fri­day af­ter­noon, call­ing it a “very dif­fi­cult de­ci­sion.”

“I love this city and it has been a great hon­our to rep­re­sent the in­ter­est of the cit­i­zens of Lethbridge as a mem­ber of city coun­cil for two terms,” she wrote.

She stated she is proud of what she was able to ac­com­plish in her time on coun­cil, and that while there is more she would like to con­trib­ute, she was step­ping back in or­der to fo­cus on com­plet­ing her MBA in ex­ec­u­tive man­age­ment and to fo­cus on pro­fes­sional de­vel­op­ment.

“As my heart truly is in public ser­vice, I look for­ward to serv­ing the peo­ple of Lethbridge and Al­berta again in some ca­pac­ity,” she wrote.
