Ward 12 by-election confirmed, Jobber secures $8 million, EndPoverty Edmonton extended - MasterMaq.ca Blog
I'm trying something new, where I share some thoughts on a few topical items in one post. Less than I'd write in a full post on each, but more than I'd include in Edmonton Notes. I'll organize them here. Have feedback? Let me know! Ward 12 by-election confirmed We now have a date for the Ward 12 by-election to replace Amarjeet Sohi! Thanks to a 30 day extension from the Province, the by-election will take place on Monday, February 22, 2016. That means Nomination Day will take place on January 25. The results of the election will be made official on February 26 by noon. As Dave noted earlier today, there are seven candidates who have announced they'll run in the by-election so far. The successful candidate will be sworn in at a special City Council meeting on February 26 from 1-2pm. Then they'll face an aggressive orientation and training period from February 29 to March 4.
