Mayor Colleen Smook and seven members of Thompson City Council were officially sworn in Wednesday evening.


Following the swearing in ceremony, Mayor Smook addressed those in attendance and said that improving communication is one of her top priorities.


She said that there are opportunities to improve communication between mayor and council, as well as between city hall and the commutiy.


Smook said that they want open minds and feedback, though she added that there are policies and protocol in place for comments from the public.


The Mayor said that councillors can listen tothe public and pass messages along, but that council should not be making any promises on changes as there are people in place to get that process going.


Mayor Smook also took time to speak about the City as a whole, saying that Thompson is more than just the 13,000+ who live within the boundaries.


She said that the City should be supporting the outlying communities such as Nelson House in addition to them supporting Thompson.


The Mayor added that she hadn’t even realized that she was the first female mayor for the City of Thompson until it was brought up at City Hall once the final election results came in.


Thompson City Council is set to meet Tuesday evening at 7:00pm, their first meeting where normal business will take place.
