Working in supply chain on site, Powlesland says he’s focused on responsible spending, and can bring experience in that area to council.

A resident of Fort McMurray for over 15 years, he says he’s also focusing on infrastructure development, community building and putting locals first.
Election day is Monday October 18th.
