Janet Crandall

My name is Janet Crandall, and I’m running for office.

I grew up in the Golden rural area, on Mitchell Road (12 mile) just south of town. With the exception of being away at school for several years, I have lived in the Golden area all my life. I am the second of five daughters of a political family. My Dad was Area A Director for 12 years and MLA for 5 years. My husband Steve Swaffield, and I, have two daughters, Megan, 20, and Madi, 12. Megan is attending SAIT in Calgary studying New Media Production & Design, while Madi is in Grade 7 French Immersion at Lady Grey Elementary. We have lived on 5th Street in Golden since 2007.

I received a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Business Administration in 1996 and I spent 14 years in the newspaper industry, the last nine years or so as Publisher of the Golden Star. For the past two and a half years I have operated a small fudge & candy store in downtown Golden.

Over the years I’ve volunteered with several local organizations, mainly the Rotary Club of Golden.

Political kids don’t always run for office. I’m not sure that we will ever see any of my sisters’ pictures on campaign posters, but I have always been intrigued with what can be achieved by boards, councils and legislatures that use their abilities in creative ways to improve the lives of those they represent. And I’ve seen first-hand the challenges as well as the rewards of being personally involved in that kind of work.
