Mayor Doug Peel

My wife Jackie and I moved to Millet in 1995 with our two young children. We were kept very busy volunteering for many of their activities including Millet Scouts, Millet Guides, Millet & Griffiths Scott School Parent Council, Millet Soccer and Millet in Bloom.

I have served on Council for the past eight years and have represented the Town of Millet on the Millet Library Board, the Yellowhead Regional Library Board, JEDI Board and various other boards and committees.

I have a passion for music and the arts and culture. My previous employment included 22 years at the Northern Alberta Jubilee Auditorium where I held several positions and in 1995 was promoted to House Manager. The band I play in has performed three times at the Firefly Music Festival held in Millet.

I currently work full time for Air Canada at the Edmonton International Airport and look forward to dedicating the next four years as your Mayor for the Town of Millet focusing on fiscal responsibility, industrial and residential growth, and a safe and healthy community.

Councillor Mike Bennett

Along with our two children my wife Sarah (Sadie)and I moved from Newfoundland to Alberta in 1986.  I spent my career in the federal government working for Canada Post in various positions.  We moved from Calgary to the beautiful town of Millet in 2016 to enjoy small time living.  I represent the Town of Millet on the Municipal Planning Commission, Millet Library Board, and the Millet Seniors. I am an active member of the Millet and District Lion’s Club.  I enjoy spending time with our grand children, and I have managed to turn our outdoor Christmas display into quite the hobby. I look forward to the privilege of serving the residents of Millet

Millet has now been home for our small family going on 3 years. Millet has been a perfect choice for my wife and I to raise our two boys.

I look forward to the privilege of serving this beautiful community over the next 4 years.

Councillor Gerdie Hogstead

Growing up in Edmonton, I often spent time at my grandparent’s farm in Millet, which led my husband and I to move to Millet. My husband and I have lived in Millet for over 43 years now and raised 3 children here.  I began my municipal career working in the Finance department at the Town of Millet for 27 years before my retirement. I served for the Communities in Bloom and was involved in a number of groups and organizations, such as: Millet Minor Hockey, Millet Minor Ball, PIPS and currently the Seniors Association. When I’m not spending time with my family and chasing my grandchildren around, you can find me walking down the Millet Pipestone Path or swinging golf clubs at the local golf courses. I am grateful for the opportunity to represent the residents and business owners of Millet and to serve this town.

Councillor Charlene Van de Kraats

I was raised on a farm just west of Millet.  Although university and my first teaching job took me away, I moved back to Millet as soon as I could and have been happily living in our beautiful community since 2009. I have been actively involved with the Millet Library for the last decade. As an educator, I have a heart for our children and youth. As our town continues to move forward and grow, it is an honour to represent and serve our community. I am proud to call Millet my home!

I have been a provincial government employee for 17 years split between Alberta Justice and Alberta Transportation.  I grew up in a small town and after having lived in Edmonton for a number of years am very happy to call Millet home and look forward to serving the community for the next 4 years.
