Town of Grimshaw Council

Mayor Wendy Wald

I have lived in this region my entire life.  My husband, Mel and I raised our two children Corey and Randi here.  I worked for the Town of Grimshaw for almost 20 years and recently retired from the administration department.  I truly enjoyed working in Municipal Government and being of service to the community.  I look forward to using that experience in making decisions as a councillor in the next chapter with the Town.

Councillor Christina Bissell

Councillor Steve Hennings

My wife and I along with our two children moved to Grimshaw in 2014.  We enjoy the small town friendly atmosphere that Grimshaw has to offer and find that it is a great place to raise a family.  I am an active volunteer in several minor sports programs as I enjoy giving back to the community.  I joined the Town Council because I wanted to contribute more to this community and I feel that I will be a valuable asset to the decision-making team.

Councillor Phillip Jacobs

I have been in the region since 1989, moving to Peace River from Ontario and finally settling here in beautiful Grimshaw just three years ago. I love this town and I am very much looking forward to serving it alongside the other council members. I look forward to playing an even more active role in this great community.  

Councillor Carmen Johnson

Councillor Stacey Messner

I am starting my second term as Councillor for the Town of Grimshaw. I married into a Peace country family and I have lived in Grimshaw since 2011.  I am educated and have worked in the field of Human Resources for over 20 years. I currently operate a HR consulting practice for businesses in the Peace Region.  I value my community and what is important to me is creating a sense of belonging for all individuals in the Town of Grimshaw.


Councillor Colleen Sklapsky

I was born and raised in Grimshaw and have chosen to raise my family here.  Grimshaw is where my roots are.  Grimshaw is my “hometownforever” town.  Community service and political engagement was just part of growing up in my home.  From the time I was very young my parents instilled in me that giving back was not optional in our society. Volunteerism is one of the most rewarding things you can do for yourself and your community.  I have had the pleasure to sit on many volunteer boards and committees over the past 50 years here in Grimshaw.  Over those years, I have learned that the talents and passion of our community members is endless.  Please reach out to me – let me know what you see in our Town that is good, what is great and what you think needs to be done better.  I always enjoy connecting with other people that share this great Town of ours.  Being elected again to serve as councillor will grant me the privilege to be involved in keeping our town as the best in the region to live, work and play.
