County Reeve Molly Douglas was the guest speaker at the Brooks Rotary Club meeting as part of their State of the Union series. The Rotary Club brought in Brooks Mayor Martin Shields last week to talk about the City of Brooks. Next week, Wildrose MLA Derek Fildrebrant will be the guest speaker next Thursday, January 26th.
Douglass talked about the work her and former Brooks Mayor Martin Shields did for cooperation and regionalization. While agriculture and oil and gas have been the backbone of the County of Newell, they are working on diversification. She mentioned the potential of solar farm near the County of Newell offices. She also said they would work on broadband.
As for running again in the next municipal election, she said it was month by month. She hinted that she might run as a councilor but not as the Reeve.
