The Cruson’s daughter recently purchased a home in Indian Head and moved here with her husband and two young children. They are enjoying being able to walk to see the grandkids!
Personal Statement: Kendra and I came to Indian Head in the middle of Covid from a downtown condo in Saskatoon. What a difference! The lifestyle in Indian Head and area is amazing. Three minute commute to work, get to a beach in 20 minutes, and all the necessities right here. My goal is to use the skills and experience to help in any way I can on Town Council. I know that being a business owner carries a larger community responsibility in Indian Head than is does in a larger center and I take this responsibility seriously.
