100 Mile House election results

Incumbents re-elected to seats in council chambers

District of 100 Mile House elections saw all four incumbent councillors – Dave Mingo, Ralph Fossum, Bill Hadden and Spence Henderson – retain their seats.

Mingo says was pleased with the result.

“It is good to have the same team on council. We work well together and we all bring our differing views and strengths to the table to the benefit of 100 Mile House.

“I also would like to thank [candidates] Rita Giesbrecht, John McCarvill and Peter Reid for putting their names forward for council; it shows they are dedicated to their community.”

Although mayoral candidate Maureen Pinkney did not win, Fossum says he greatly respects her enthusiasm, energy and ongoing hard work, so he hopes council can retain some of her assistance with ongoing government issues.

“I think we have a good team; the town is healthy; and the election reflected that. There were so many votes for the incumbents, and I am thankful for that.”

Hadden says the election results were “quite interesting.”

“We received a majority support, the four councillors re-elected, so we are very, very happy about that. But, there were also a significant amount of people who voted for change.”

Hadden says he plans to sit down with the three candidates who did not win to find out more about their concerns, and then build that into what council does moving forward.

Henderson says he is also enthusiastic to get back to work with the same group.

“We have great staff, and all of us are back, so I am pretty excited about the future.”

His plan is to now do more brainstorming on the key issues with the rest of council, he explains.

Henderson adds a potential trades training centre and new water supplies will likely be at the top of the list.
