Councillor Karen Shaw

Division 6

Re-elected for her fourth term, Councillor Karen Shaw believes that community input is an important component of a strong and sustainable community and welcomes and encourages open dialogue with Sturgeon County residents.

Councillor Shaw lives with her husband Stuart on the original homestead, settled in 1903. Together, they have three children and they are expecting their ninth grandchild in the spring. When away from Council Chambers, Karen and Stuart raise commercial Angus X Simmental cattle and she volunteers with numerous local agencies, including 4H and the Land Stewardship group.

In her spare time, she spends time outdoors, playing sports and riding horses.  Karen was first elected to Council in 2007.
