Joined Council in 2000
After having the good fortune to snag an “I do” from Joyce Metchuk in 1974, Regina-raised Cec Snyder and his new bride set out to find a place to build their home. Although they raised many eyebrows when they settled on White City, which was still a village at the time, Cec and Joyce saw the potential for White City, from its nearness to Regina’s services to the large lots and the small town feel. Cec first became Councillor Snyder in November 2000, with the goal of helping the community, which was freshly designated as a town just that year, become more “business-friendly,” something which has likely helped White City flourish to become what it is today.
Cec, who sees White City growing into a bona fide city in the next few years, has been involved with much of the town’s expansion. From the construction of the second public elementary school and the ball diamonds, skate park and splash park, to the growth of the volunteer fire department and the millions of dollars of infrastructure brought to the town through the new Wastewater Utility Board, Cec is proud to have been a part of the community’s growth. One of the biggest challenges Council and administration face in the coming years is maintaining a high standard of service and keeping infrastructure up to date. It’s a good challenge to have, and one Cec and the rest of the team are ready to meet!
The original owner of a 1973 Corvette, and a recently acquired late model ‘Vette, when Cec isn’t hard at work growing White City, he often finds himself traveling across Western Canada with his beloved cars, showing them off to other admirers, and participating in autocross events.
