The mayor-elect of Canal Flats says he finds the voter turnout “exceptional”.
Karl Sterzer says he feels gratitude to the voters regardless of who they voted for.
Sterzer says he wants work with council to keep the people united and working together.
“There’s no way,” Sterzer says. “That we can accomplish the things we need to accomplish in the community, with just one person. It’s going to take the community, the staff, the mayor and council together to push in the same direction, and I believe we can do that and I’m really excited for the challenge.”
Sterzer won the municipal election with 270 votes, over Brian M Woodward’s 112.
Civicinfo BC says 387 of an estimated 538 eligible voters took part in Saturday’s democratic process.
