Spencer Nikkel has been a resident of Martensville for approximately four years and moved here prior to the birth of his first son after him and his wife decided that this was the place that they were going to establish roots and raise their family.
Knowing that this was going to be their new home, Nikkel wanted to get involved in the community that his kids were going to be growing up in, with running for a position on Martensville City Council being one of the ways he could be more involved. “Participating on City Council is just one of the ways that I feel comfortable contributing to the future of Martensville,” Nikkel said.
In his opinion, Nikkel stated that be believes that community, financial stewardship and good business environment are important to good government. “I have spent many hours volunteering, have been educated in financial planning and have been involved in business my entire life, including operating a franchise in Saskatoon and now working in the startup tech community. I believe these helped set me up well to address the needs of Martensville as we continue to grow over the coming years,” Nikkel explained.
Nikkel added that Martensville’s current growth trajectory is on a good path; however, many people within the community are spending their days working, shopping and doing activities in Saskatoon. “The more we draw professional employers to Martensville, as well as more recreation and social opportunities, the more we can build community and generate a healthier, more balanced economic centre.”
