Cranbrook’s newest City Councillor had a convincing election according to preliminary by-election results.
On Saturday, residents cast ballots to replace now Kootenay East MLA Tom Shypitka.
Mike Peabody earned almost 44 per cent of the vote, compiling at least 450 more ballots than any of the other eight candidates.
A total of 2,300 hundred votes were made through this weekend’s general vote and two advanced polls earlier this month.
The declaration of the ‘official’ by-election results will be done Wednesday at City Hall.
