Dafoe WORKS For you

Stephen Dafoe

Morinville Council Candidate

About me

I’m a 15-year resident of Morinville, a local business owner, and I am seeking your support to WORK FOR YOU for four more years


For the past eight years, I have worked hard to ensure your questions have been answered and your concerns brought forward to Town Council. Commitment to the role, communication with my fellow residents, and using common sense at the council table have been my priority and my method of operation.

Although the role of councillor requires a collaborative work relationship with the mayor, council and administration, I do not work for the mayor, council or administration. I work for you. That has been my focus and will continue to be my focus over the next four years.

My Promise To You

Candidates often make promises, not realizing they are but one of seven votes. As I did in my first two campaigns, I make three promises to you. They are the only real promises a candidate for public office can make.


The role of councillor cannot be effectively performed without complete commitment to the work that needs to be done. I pledge to continue to do just that.


As a resident you have a right to have your questions answered and to be kept informed about the decisions council makes. I will continue to keep you informed.

Common Sense

Common sense means getting the facts and using sound judgement to make practical decisions for the community. I will continue to vote with fact and info, not emotions.
