Joined Council in 2006
Mayor Bruce Evans and his wife Denise, a teacher, both grew up in Regina, but they had their eye on White City as a place to raise their four sons for years before they made the move in 1999. Echoing the sentiments of citizens and councillors alike, Bruce and Denise were drawn to White City by the quiet, safe environment, large lots and lower costs.
After a Town employee encouraged him to run, Bruce joined Council in 2006, and since then he has been proud to collaborate with other levels of government to provide important infrastructure for the growing town, from Emerald Ridge Elementary School to the overpass at Highways 48 and 1, to the new wastewater treatment plant. Thanks to Council’s hard work, White City has been the fastest growing town in all of Canada for 10 years running! Going forward, Bruce is excited for the opportunity to start fresh to create a unique and inviting downtown neighbourhood that the community can grow into, and around.
Clear-eyed and practical, Bruce recognizes that the growth he’s so proud of can pose a real threat to the small town feel that means so much to White City. He and the Council are determined to continue providing White City’s “Country Living” alternative to tiny, expensive urban lots.
When Bruce isn’t hard at work being Mayor or enjoying his time with Denise and their sons, he can often be found in the garage, pining for the classic car he once owned.
