A former city councillor, long time resident of Yorkton and community volunteer, Arliss Dellow seeks your support in the civic election on October 24, 2012.
Arliss' many years of work and volunteerism in the community, as well as his involvement with provincial, national and international organizations have kept him in close contact with the needs of our youth, young families, and seniors as well as the business and legal community in Yorkton and the issues that directly affect all of them.
He was first elected in 1970 to Yorkton City Council and served on, and chaired, many of the committees and commissions of the city and continues to do so. He is presently serving as chair of the Development Appeals Board. Now retired from the practice of Law after forty-two years, he has the time to work on behalf of all the citizens of Yorkton.
While in Yorkton he taught Sunday School, couched minor girls softball, and served on many boards, and was President of the Yorkton Jaycees, the Yorkton Optimist Club, the Yorkton Speed Swimming Club, the Yorkton Liberal Association, a past director of SIGN and the Yorkton Film Festival. He served twelve years, six as chairman, on the Board of the Yorkton Housing Authority and chaired the fact-finding body for the Yorkton Rail-line Relocation committee. He was, for twenty-seven years, a provincial, national and international (FINA) Master speed swimming official, both as Referee and Starter. He was also a founding director and president of the Saskatchewan Literary Network (SNL). For the past number of years he has volunteered many hours for the Salvation Army, the Soup Haven, and Food bank and currently is an advisor to the board and membership of the New Horizons Seniors Centre of Yorkton.
Born and raised in Gainsborough, Arliss has lived most of his life in Yorkton. He and his wife Eileen chose Yorkton in 1967 as the community where they wished to reside and their two children were born, raised and educated here.
