Separate (Catholic) School Board Trustee - Wards 9 & 10 and Chestermere

Michael O'Malley, elected to this seat in the last election before being judicially disqualified from service to the board while he was simultaneously suing it, filed papers to run for the seat again. He was disqualified from candidacy for both this election and the 2010 election, but his name may still appear on the ballot.

Gerald Adam "Jerry" Heighes has served this area as their trustee in the past, before going down to what he described as "attack ads" by O'Malley in the last election. He bills himself as the only candidate living in the riding, and then (ironically) proceeds to attack his opponent on his website, located here.

Rosemarie Goerlitz ran in Wards 3 & 5 and Airdrie in the last election, and was defeated. The former teacher is running to repair the damage she feels was done to the ward by the O'Malley debacle of the past years.

The candidate's forum will take place on October 9, 2007, at 7:00 p.m. at Holy Cross School (3719 - 26 Avenue SE).
