Hello Village of Delia residents. I am writing to introduce myself as the Village of Delia’s new Chief
Administrative Officer (CAO), Tracy Breese.
Since 2008, I have worked for a few municipalities across Alberta. Fairly new to the area, currently
living in Drumheller, I am not new to Municipal government and I feel ready to take on this new
“The timing was right for me.” Having completed the National Advanced Certificate in Local
Authority Administration Level 1 last year and just recently completing the National Advanced
Certificate in Local Authority Administration Level II, I am planning on applying for the Certified Local
Government Managers (CLGM) designation which signifies a public manager who has already
received a high level of academic and professional achievement and has a commitment to ongoing
education. As well, the CLGM designation recognizes a manager, of good character and reputation,
who practices the standards governed by the Society.
What I love most about the job is “the challenge of being able to work with residents and council
to come up with the best solutions to provide services to them to the best benefit.”
I was born in Northern Ontario and grew up in BC. My husband and I made the move to Alberta over 27
In terms of what I bring to the table is my ability to communicate and listen, bring people together,
problem solve and I have a diverse skills set which includes a background in Real Estate, Safety Codes,
Planning and Development, GIS, IT, and Office Administration.
When compared to my previously worked municipalities to the Village, I find there are some
similarities, and some differences.
“This Village is substantially smaller than the last few Municipalities that I came from such as Rocky View
County and Athabasca County, but it’s very similar in nature as far as some of the rural infrastructure in
the area and the farming community.”
I would describe my management style as open and I welcome any questions, comments, or concerns.
My first day was April 21, 2020. I am looking forward to meeting the residents and seeing what the area
has to offer. (Once things are back to normal that is).
“Our kids are older now so it’s just my husband and I and our dog Cody. We love the outdoors. We love
to travel, hike, go camping, fish, and to take the car out and attend car shows on weekends.
