Currently completing her first term as town councillor, Tammy Burke feels that the next commitment she would like to make to the community is being Mayor.
As Mayor, and a resident for the last 45 years, Burke's primary focus listed on her Facebook page would include positively growing the town in both current and new business development, and to continue enhancing community life.
Burke sits on boards like, Alberta Urban Municipality Association: Safe and Healthy Communities and Sustainability and Environment. Committees she sits on for the Town of Rocky Mountain House are the Regional Solid Waste Authority, Public Library, Parkland Regional Library (Executive Member), Municipal Planning Committee, New Rocky Hospital Committee, Rocky Affordable Housing, Community Futures, and Rocky/Clearwater/Caroline Physician Recruitment & Retention.
The skills of municipal employees, believing in the municipal processes, progressive change and building a community for future generations are just some of Burke's values and beliefs.
Hiring a Chief Administrative Officer (CAO), attracting new business development, enabling the collaboration of a newly elected council, establishing a consistent forum of public communication and promotion of local tourism are among the priorities Burke says she is most passionate about, pushing her to be Mayor.
