Jane Stroud - Ward 4
"Our region has the opportunity to become an attractive, progressive and sustainable community.” Jane Stroud lives by those words. Born and raised in the Regional Municipality of Wood Buffalo, she cares deeply about its future. She especially embraces being a Councillor for Ward 4. Passionate about environmental protection, she is a strong advocate for the bag bylaw. “It is so nice to drive into Fort McMurray and see the trees without plastic bags around them.”
She also is very involved in Council appointed boards that include the Governance, Agenda and Priorities Standing Committee, the Budget and Audit Committee, Rural Development, the Selection Committee, the Inter-City Forum on Social Policy and the Veterans Memorial Highway.
Jane is committed to the fulfillment of essential core services for those in Ward 4 which includes water and sewer servicing, a sidewalk for youth to walk on when travelling to and from school, usable skating rinks, family community support services for seniors/elders, walking trails and ongoing road repairs. She continues to lobby for high-speed Internet for Gregoire Lake Estates, Janvier and Conklin as well as giving Janvier and Conklin the ability to listen to local Fort McMurray radio stations.
Jane has two children and three grandchildren. In her free time she enjoys visiting with family and golfing. She is humbled and very happy to be re-elected to Council by the residents of Ward 4 and looks forward to her next four years on Council.
Jane is the recipient of a Citizen Recognition Award (for her work in environmental protection) from the community of Anzac.
