When people in Swift Current cast their ballot in this October’s municipal election, they will be selecting a new mayor.
Current mayor Jerrod Schaefer has announced he will not seek re-election and that he is stepping aside from public office to spend more time with family.
Schaefer was first elected to Swift Current council in 2003 and became mayor in the 2009 election.
Schaefer says he leaves office with many highlights and a few regrets.
He adds he has no other political plans at this time.
