Councillor Sandra Lyon

Ponoka is a great place to call home. The beautiful walking trails along the Battle River Valley and the people here make our community so wonderful. My vision for Ponoka is to be a progressive Town with a focus on new and existing infrastructure while maintaining our hometown feel.
