It appears John McEwen will remain as mayor of Anmore for another four years.

The 57-year-old business owner is predicted to be the mayor-elect after earning 67.8 per cent of the preliminary vote in the 2022 municipal election on Saturday (Oct. 15).

Mario Piamonte finished in second with 32.2 per cent of the final ballot after poll stations closed at 8 p.m. last night.

"The number one issue is ensuring financial sustainability, while making sure young families can buy in our community and participate in our volunteer fire department and elementary school," said McEwen in an earlier campaign questionnaire by the Tri-City News.

Eligible Anmore voters only had once choice to make this year when they went to the polls.

The village' next four-year council was acclaimed on Sept. 20 after two candidates withdrew from the race.

They are as follows (in alphabetical order): 

  • Polly Krier (incumbent)
    • Second term
  • Douglas Richardson
  • Kim Trowbridge (incumbent)
    • Third term
  • Paul Weverink (incumbent)
    • Third term

As well, Kerri Palmer Isaak was acclaimed at the nomination period deadline, 4 p.m. on Sept. 9, to retain her seat as the village's representative on School District 43's (SD43) board of education.

Broken down, it appears 61.4 per cent (539 ballots cast) of participating Anmore residents took advantage of the general voting day yesterday.

A total of 302 were cast on the village's one and only advance voting day (Oct. 5).
