New Regina Mayor

Blog, Municipal Government, Peter McCaffrey

As the polls predicted, last night Michael Fougere was elected Regina’s new mayor.

Largely seen as the “status quo” candidate, and endorsed by the outgoing and long-serving mayor Pat Fiacco, Fougere had described the election as a referendum on the previous councils plans on the city’s stadium and downtown revitalization initiatives.

Fougere was elected with 21,685 votes (43 per cent).

Marian Donnelly was second, with 16,240 votes (32 per cent).

Meka Okochi was third, with 8,960 votes (18 per cent).

No other candidate received over 5% of the vote.
