I hope ev­ery­one had a won­der­ful Easter! At Nazareth we had a won­der­ful wor­ship with a visit from a real live bunny!

At­ten­tion res­i­dents: there will be an elec­tion held on April 4 at the Stan­dard Vil­lage Of­fice from 10:00 am to 8:00 pm for the po­si­tion of Coun­cil­lor. On nom­i­na­tion day we re­ceived two nom­i­na­tions and thus an elec­tion will be held. The two nom­i­nees are El­iz­a­beth Nys­trom and Bran­don Duf­fala. If you have any ques­tions, please give Leah Jensen a call at 644-3968.

The fol­low­ing is a mes­sage from can­di­date Bran­don Duf­fala: “Serv­ing on town coun­cil, for me, is about giv­ing back to my com­mu­nity. Since choos­ing Stan­dard as our home 5 years ago, I have been en­thu­si­as­ti­cally in­volved with var­i­ous vol­un­teer com­mu­nity projects. Most of my con­tri­bu­tions have been as­so­ci­ated with the Stan­dard Mu­nic­i­pal Li­brary, as my wife, Adreena, is the man­ager there. An­nu­ally, we de­sign and build a float rep­re­sent­ing the Stan­dard Li­brary for our Vil­lage Sports Day Pa­rade. And I am proud to say we won first place last year! An­other very spe­cial project is per­son­ally co­or­di­nat­ing a visit from Santa ev­ery year for the chil­dren at the li­brary Christ­mas party. Last year our Mayor, Alan Larsen, was lucky enough to re­ceive a candy cane di­rectly from Mr. Claus. I be­lieve I would be an as­set to Town Coun­cil by bring­ing new ideas, a pos­i­tive ap­proach, and a sin­cere ded­i­ca­tion to keep­ing the Vil­lage of Stan­dard a safe and wel­com­ing com­mu­nity that we can all be proud to call home. If elected as Town Coun­cilor, the first or­der of busi­ness for me, would be to learn the in­ner work­ings of the process from the ex­pe­ri­enced Coun­cil mem­bers. To be ef­fec­tive you need to learn why things are the way they are, in or­der to help sup­port and pro­mote con­tin­ual im­prove­ment. I see Town Coun­cils as the beat­ing hearts of our small com­mu­ni­ties. And I can’t think of a bet­ter way to play an im­por­tant role in the bet­ter­ment of our so­ci­ety. Thank you for your vote on April 4! - Bran­don Duf­fala, Elec­toral Can­di­date for Town Coun­cil”

The fol­low­ing is a mes­sage from can­di­date El­iz­a­beth Nys- trom.

“Our vil­lage will be hold­ing a by-elec­tion April 4, 2016, and I’m run­ning for vil­lage coun­cil! Let me tell you about my­self, I moved to the area af­ter at­tend­ing Olds Col­lege in 2005. I’m a firm be­liever in vol­un­teer­ing and be­ing apart of the com­mu­nity. Cur­rently I’m on the li­brary board, beau­ti­fi­ca­tion com­mit­tee as well as the Mem­ory Lane Park plan­ning com­mit­tee. I re­ally en­joy liv­ing in our lit­tle vil­lage and want to do more to see us grow and thrive. On elec­tion day please come out and vote El­iz­a­beth Nys­trom for vil­lage coun­cil. El­iz­a­beth Nys­trom, Elec­toral Can­di­date for Town Coun­cil.”
