Moose Jaw Civic Election Highlights

councildesk

No one was ready to declare anyone elected until each and every one of the votes were counted.  Some races were that close.  The races for mayor, city council and public school board were all, at times, exciting to watch as civic election results trickled in Wednesday night.

Moose Jaw's new mayor-elect is Deb Higgins.  Higgins, who will become the first female mayor in our city's history, was out in front of her opponent by just a few hundred votes all night.  In the end, it proved to be enough as the former MLA defeated Ex-City Councillor Fraser Tolmie by 594 votes.

Moose Jaw City Council will look very much the same with a couple of new faces.  Incumbents Heather Eby, Dawn Luhning, Brian Swanson and Don Mitchell are all returning to council chambers for a four-year term.  New to the big desk are rookie candidates Patrick Boyle and Candis Kirkpatrick.  For what it's worth, Ira Dales was just 54 votes shy of a council seat.

In the race for the final spot, in Subdivision 6 on the Prairie South School, there were just 32 votes separating Darrell Crabbe and Barb Owens.  Crabbe, and fellow incumbents Lew Young and Brian Swanson, retained their seats.  Tim McLeod and Jan Radwanski are new to the board.

And the majaority of Moose Javians, who voted, voted against adopting the ward system in Moose Jaw.  54 per cent felt it wasn't right for our city while the other 46 per cent, obviously, voted in favour.
