She was serving as a Councilor at Large and as the Finance and Administrative Chair with the Young Greens Council. Shasko has been a candidate for the Green Party three times in the past three years, twice federally in the riding of Palliser (2006 & 2008), and once provincially in the riding of Moose Jaw Wakamow (2007).[1]
