LETHBRIDGE – A monthly meeting of close to forty southern Alberta mayors and reeves had an extra participant Friday.

Premier Dave Hancock was in Lethbridge to discuss local concerns and update municipal leaders on what the provincial government is doing.

Lethbridge-East MLA Bridget Pastoor was also part of the meetings and said, “even if we are in a leadership race, the government continues.”

The Progressive Conservative Party is looking for a new leader after former Premier Alison Redford resigned in the wake of repeated expense scandals.

“Hancock has calmed the waters and he has the departments and the work that has to be done going forward at a very rapid pace,” said Pastoor.

The municipal meeting lasted about an hour. Hancock left Lethbridge for Calgary shortly after.
