The Chief of the Prince Albert Grand Council says he will take the next month and a half to decide his future.


Yesterday, Gary Merasty announced he will not be seeking re-election this fall.


Merasty says he feels good about the state of the PAGC right now, and is looking for a change.


He is also not ruling out a run at federal politics.


Merasty says advancements in education development and broadband internet in the north are just a few of the accomplishments he’s proud of.


A new Chief will be elected on October 18th. Merasty will serve on until then.
