Councillor Richards moved to Weyburn in 1991 and although he left briefly in 1995 he just couldn’t stay away and returned to Weyburn in 2000 where he has remained ever since. Councillor Richards and his wife are raising their family in Weyburn, a daughter and a son, and they love the community so much they plan to retire here when the time comes.
The family owns a business in Weyburn which is operated by Richards’ wife, Lynette. Councillor Richards is the Vice President of strategic development at Southeast College where he works with Provincial and Federal Governments on partnerships to bring new training and opportunities to students.
Richards’ goal as councillor is to keep Weyburn growing and moving into the future.
