The councillor for Ward 4 in the RM of Portage la Prairie is seeking a final term. Ray Davidson's letting his name stand in the October municipal election. He's been on Council for 20 years, and has found it enjoyable -- he credits residents as being very understanding. He thinks they share his concern to get the Rat Creek Diversion completed to prevent flooding in the MacDonald area.
Davidson notes the RM has been working on the diversion for some time, and he'd like to see it completed before leaving Council. With at least three new members to be elected, he thinks his experience will help them adjust to being on Council.
