Final city vote tally in

The final vote count for Terrace's mayor and city councillors is finished.

The final vote count for Terrace’s mayor and city councillors is finished.

While the numbers will not be made official until tomorrow, chief election officer Cathy Jackson said the following tallies aren’t expected to change.

Incumbent mayor Dave Pernarowski received the majority of mayoral votes, 1211, at 54 per cent. Next up, councillor Bruce Martindale received 630 votes, Jennifer Lewis received 210, Merv Ritchie 169 and Don Dunster 27.

The incumbent city councillors topped the polls this election, each receiving a majority of votes from those who marked a ballot.

Incumbent Bruce Bidgood charted highest at 1427, Lynne Christiansen next at 1396 and Brian Downie following closely at 1351.

Returning councillor Marylin Davies’ results took a dramatic turn this year compared to the 2008 election in which she ran. After seven years on council, Davies ranked last out of 10 in the 2008 election and subsequently lost her seat. However, this time she jumped up to fourth out of 12, receiving 921 votes.

Newcomers to council for the next term are James Cordeiro, with 866 votes, and Stacey Tyers, with 827 votes.

Tyers squeaked in above Tyson Hull with a 14 vote lead. Hull received 813 votes.

Others who ran but weren’t elected for a seat include Tamara Ainscow, who received 709 votes, Chris Gee with 706, Mike Ross with 616, MaryAnn Freeman with 525 and Dan LeFrancois at 483.

The new mayor and council will be sworn in next month.
