The Drumheller Mail - - NEWS - Krystin McHugh

The Vil­lage of Big Val­ley wel­comed for­mer coun­cil­lor, As­aph Ken John­son, as mayor Oc­to­ber 26. Mayor John­son told The Mail that Big Val­ley has three coun­cil­lors in to­tal and they work to­gether as a team. After re­vis­it­ing their roles within ad­min­is­tra­tion this year, Lois Miller stepped down as Mayor which pro­vided Mayor John­son the op­por­tu­nity to put his ex­pe­ri­ence to use.

Mayor John­son said, “I have been a coun­cil­lor for three years and feel I have the ex­pe­ri­ence to step in as Mayor. We have al­ways had a fairly even dis­tri­bu­tion of re­spon­si­bil­i­ties be­tween the three of us. When you get a team like ours, it’s good be­cause we re­ally lis­ten to each other and work to­gether in­stead of against each other on all mat­ters.”
