A veteran Saskatoon city councillor is vying for a new title — president of the Saskatchewan Urban Municipalities Association.
Darren Hill submitted his nomination papers this week to become the next president of SUMA.
Hill says he was interested in running four years ago, but did not want to compete against his friend, former Weyburn mayor Debra Button.
Button was defeated in her bid for another term as mayor in October.
Hill currently serves on the SUMA board of directors – and has done so for the last ten years.
He also says his Saskatchewan Junior Achievement experience has taken him virtually across the province, working with business groups, and rural leaders.
SUMA includes membership from the municipalities representing Saskatchewan’s cities, towns and villages.
The election to fill the SUMA President position takes place in Saskatoon February 5 to 8.
