    Default Carr takes close mayor race

    "Challenger Roxanne Carr edged mayoral incumbent Linda Osinchuk out of her seat on Monday, Oct. 21 by winning the Strathcona County municipal election by the closet margin in the province.

    The votes came down to 12,583 for Carr, with 12,137 for Osinchuk in the final tally (50 per cent to 49 per cent).

    Carr, who served two terms as the Ward 2 councillor, challenged the first-term mayor."

    Shouldn't much matter. Any incumbent that doesn't win an election doesn't deserve to. So much of incumbent voting is automatic that in anything even resembling a close race the challenger has usually run the worthy campaign and platform. either that or the incumbent leaves a lot to be desired. I think more the latter in this one.

    Looks like Jason Gariepy will have more time to pursue his hobbies, losing his council seat to Fiona Beland-Quest.
