Councillor Tom Bahm was born in Kerrobert, SK and along with wife Michelle and boys Cooper and Tanner has lived in Sedgewick for the past 18 years. Tom came to Sedgewick after accepting a position with Enbridge and still works with the company today as a Pipeline Maintenance Supervisor.
Tom put his name forward to be on council because he believes he has the ability to contribute to sound decisions that will benefit the town as a whole. He wishes for the town to continue to move forward on a positive path but at the same time recognizes the maintenance needs of unnoticed infrastructure. Although he is determined to maintain what previous councils have built for us, he also believes the community shouldn’t only focus on the new and shiney.
Away from work Tom likes to hunt, fish, lay on the couch and spend time with his family.
