(July 10, 2017, Fort McMurray, AB) – Regional Municipality of Wood Buffalo mayoral

candidate Don Scott is pleased to share the following endorsement he has received from well

known Wood Buffalo business owner, dedicated community volunteer and resident Dan Fouts.

“During the time I have known Don Scott, he has served this community as an active volunteer,

a member of Regional Municipality of Wood Buffalo Council, an MLA and a cabinet minister

under the provincial government. In addition, he has become a recognized and successful small

business owner.


Don is aware of the many issues this region currently faces, and has developed a platform that

speaks to these issues in an articulate and thoughtful manner. Through Don’s volunteer service

on boards for organizations such as the United Way of Fort McMurray, he has had the

opportunity to develop strong relationships with our local non-profit organizations and

understands their needs as they work to support residents of this region, particularly subsequent

to the wildfire in May 2016 and the ongoing recovery.


As a small business owner, he knows the many challenges businesses in our region are

experiencing, and he will work to ensure our local businesses receive the support they need to

continue to successfully operate in our region and both serve and employ our residents. In

addition, I believe Don will work to attract both new businesses and residents to the region in an

effort to bolster our local economy and ensure future economic sustainability and viability.


For these reasons, along with Don’s exemplary advocacy for our region, his clear understanding

of the challenges we face, his ability to foster strong relationships with all stakeholders, his skill

in achieving consensus and his overall leadership role in our region, I am pleased to provide this

personal endorsement of Don Scott as the next Mayor of the Regional Municipality of Wood

Buffalo. I believe Don is the leader we need for the challenges facing us today and into the future

as we continue the rebuilding process of our community in these difficult economic times.” –

Dan Fouts


Said Don Scott: “I am honoured to receive this endorsement as I seek election as the next mayor

of the Wood Buffalo region. Dan Fouts is not only a respected business leader but a dedicated

and committed community volunteer, and I am humbled to have earned his confidence as I seek

to build a stronger tomorrow for the residents of Wood Buffalo.”
