The municipal election is still months away, but the competition for the coveted council and mayoral seats has already begun with the announcement of the first candidate in the municipal race, Tyran Ault.
October’s election will mark Ault’s second bid for a seat on council – he lost by a narrow margin to Colleen Tatum and Christine Burton in last June’s by-election. Ault says that the loss far from dampened his spirits – if anything, he says, the defeat made him realize just how much he wants to sit on council.
A Fort McMurray local has announced his intention to run for city council.
Tyran Ault has lived in town the last 23 years, and currently works in Community Relations at Suncor.
Ault says that focusing on the little things will be a big part of his campaign.
Tyran Ault is thrilled to announce he will be seeking a Ward 1 Councillor position within the Regional Municipality of Wood Buffalo (RMWB) in the October 21, 2013 general election.
“I’ve had many conversations with residents and community groups over the past few months and there is a resounding sentiment to have a fresh voice on Council. I believe my insight into recent proceedings and my experience working in and with the private sector, public sector, social profit groups and industry make me the ideal candidate to represent the people of Fort McMurray,” Ault said.
Ault has called Fort McMurray home for 23 years, and is proud to say this community has molded him into the person he is today. Currently a Team Lead for Community Relations with Suncor Energy, Ault has previously worked as a spokesperson with the RMWB and as a local radio personality at Mix 103.7.
