REGINA - Delegates to the Saskatchewan Urban Municipalities Association convention have elected Randy Goulden as their new president.

Goulden defeated Mayor Kyle Bennett of Shaunavon in the election held Tuesday.

Goulden is a Yorkton city councillor who has been active in leadership roles with SUMA for years. She has been on the SUMA board for two decades and has been a representative with Federation of Canadian Municipalities. Goulden has been acting as interim president of SUMA since the resignation of Rodger Hayward after just a year in the role.

Hayward, mayor of Naicam, departed as president in February after accepting a promotion at United Agri Products Canada Inc., his regular employer. Hayward had defeated incumbent Gordon Barnhart during the 2021 SUMA election.
