Naam van de archiefvormer



William Hawrelak was born in 1915 in Wasel, Alberta. He moved to Edmonton in 1945 and established a soft drink company called Prairie Rose Manufacturing. He was also President of the Alberta Farmer's Union, and of the Edmonton Federation of Community Leagues before entering municipal politics.

William Hawrelak ran unsuccessfully as an Alderman in the 1948 municipal election, but was elected the following year for a two year term. In 1951 he took over as Mayor when Mayor Sidney Parsons had to temporarily step down for health reasons.

William Hawrelak ran as Mayor in 1951, defeating the incumbent Sidney Parsons, and ran successful re-election campaigns in 1953, 1955, and 1957. In 1959 William Hawrelak resigned as Mayor following a Provincial inquiry into questionable land sales. He was re-elected as Mayor in 1963 and 1964, but was again ousted in 1965 because of his real estate holdings and land transactions. William Hawrelak was elected Mayor a final time in 1974, but passed away of a heart attack the following year while still in office.
