Harvie’s Achieving for Delta slate leading race for council and school board

(UPDATE: 11:20 p.m.)

George Harvie and his Achieving for Delta slate have swept the race for council and won all but one seat on school board.

With all 32 polls now reporting in, Harvie finished well ahead of mayoral candidates Peter van der Velden and Joginder Randhawa, with 17,050 votes, 77 per cent of ballots cast in the city. van der Velden came in second with 3,751 and Randhawa in third with 1,341.

All six Achieving for Delta candidates have been elected to council, led by incumbent Alicia Guichon with 16,533 votes. Incumbent Dylan Kruger was also re-elected with 14,242 votes, followed by newcomers Daniel Boisvert (14,130), Jennifer Johal (12,788), Rod Binder (12,626) and Jessie Dosanjh (12,582).

Harvie’s slate nearly swept the race for school board as well, winning six of seven seats. Incumbents Erica Beard and Val Windsor led the way with 13,677 and 13,500 votes respectively, followed by newcomers Ammen Dhillon (11,769), Masako Gooch (10,748), Nimmi Duala (10,699) and Joe Muego (9,983).

Incumbent Nick Kanakos (Independents Working for You) is the lone candidate not on Harvie’s slate to be elected in either race, garnering 8,927 votes. Maury Kask, the only Achieving for Delta candidate not to be elected, came in eighth with 8,774 votes, while Kanakos’ running mate, incumbent Bruce Reid, came in ninth place with 7,955 votes.

All results are preliminary pending the official tally, which will be announced at 4 p.m. on Wednesday, Oct. 19.

Voter turnout was much lower this election, with only 22,655 of the 75,739 residents registered to vote casting a ballot — just shy of 30 per cent. In 2018, 31,434 out of 73,110 registered voters cast a ballot, or 43 per cent.

The first council meeting post-election is scheduled for Monday, Oct. 24, while the inaugural school board meeting will be on Tuesday, Nov. 8.

(Original story)

Polls in Delta are now closed and as the ballots are counted a new city council and school board will take shape.

Residents voted today to elect a mayor, six city councillors and seven school board trustees to a four-year term in office.

Thirty-one candidates — three for mayor, 13 for councillor and 15 for school trustee — are running in this election, including incumbent mayor George Harvie, incumbent councillors Alicia Guichon and Dylan Kruger, and incumbent trustees Erica Beard, Nick Kanakos, Bruce Reid and Val Windsor.

Regardless of who gets elected, both city council and school board will look very different come Sunday. Four of six current councillors — Dan Copeland, Lois Jackson, Jeannie Kanakos and Bruce McDonald — are not seeking re-election, and it’s guaranteed there will be at least three new members on school board with Trustee Laura Dixon retiring from politics and trustees Daniel Boisvert and Jessie Dosanjh pursuing seats on council.

Stay tuned for more updates…
