LETHBRIDGE, AB – Former Blood Tribe Councillor, Sheldon Day Chief, is hoping to become the next Mayor of Lethbridge.

He says it’s time to bring the entire community together to address some of the challenges we’re facing like homelessness, rising crime rates and the drug crisis.

And, Day Chief says that has to start with the voter.

He’s encouraging residents to “truly listen” to the candidates running this fall and to consider those who have a real plan moving forward.
