Mayor Kent Bullock

I grew up in Welling, Alberta on a small irrigation farm. It was a mixed farming operation with cows, pigs, chickens, grain and hay. I attended elementary school in Welling and then went to Magrath for junior high and high school. I graduated from Brigham Young University in 1977 with a Masters degree in Civil Engineering. After university I worked for Eastern Irrigation District for 4 years and for Taber Irrigation District for 32 years; first as the District Engineer and then as the General Manager for the last 24 years. I am married to Nola (Bennett) from Cardston and we have 6 children and 29 grandchildren. We have lived in Barnwell since 1981 and enjoy the friendly small town atmosphere. I look forward to serving on Village Council to help to promote the continued viability of this community.
