The results are in, and while the results were still unofficial at press time, we see a mixture of new and old faces that will steer Chestermere for the next four years.
The polls seemed to be consistently busy for the poor showing of only 26% voter turnout. I have to admit that with all dialogue we have heard from readers that it is surprising that the turnout was not much larger.
“The election process went smoothly and we were pleased with the approximately 26% voter turnout” said LaRae Ellis, Returning Officer for the Town. “I would like to offer my congratulations to the successful candidates and thank all those who put so much time and effort into this election.”
|Votes Received * Indicates a successful candidate.|
An organizational meeting and swearing in ceremony for the newly elected Council will be held on Monday, October 28, 2013 at 6:00 p.m. The public is welcome to attend. More information will be posted to www.chestermere.ca
We at The Chestermere Anchor will be contacting all of our elected officials over the next few weeks to bring you their comments and observations of this election. Stay Tuned.
