Things will look a little different at City Hall in downtown Winnipeg for the next few years.
With previous mayor Brian Bowman stepping down after two terms, and two councillors throwing their names in the ring for his job — not to mention a host of challengers for seats across the city — council was bound to have a different makeup.
Here’s who will be representing Winnipeg, which faces have changed, and which councillors have successfully defended their seats.
As of midnight, the election results remain unofficial.
Who’s in: Scott Gillingham, first elected as councillor for the St. James ward in 2014 and re-elected in 2018, was the city’s finance chair for more than five years, among other committee roles. Prior to politics, he served as a pastor for more than two decades.
Who’s out: Brian Bowman, a privacy lawyer prior to his entry into politics, was the 43rd mayor of Winnipeg. First elected in the 2014 municipal election, he was re-elected for a second term in October 2018. Bowman decided not to run for a third term, choosing to return to private life.
