Moose Jaw City Hall was the place to be Wednesday night to stay up to date on election voting.
The council chambers was a hive of activity as candidates, volunteers and spectators crammed into the room to witness who would be at the political civic helm for the next four years.
“I come out all the time for council meetings, so I couldn’t miss it, I had to be here tonight,” Rick Dalaway told the Times-Herald. “I’m not really rooting for anyone, just watching.”
Carrie Hlady, wife of council candidate Dustan Hlady was pulling double duty as a supporter and spectator. “We’re having people over at home afterwards... we felt so nervous coming down.”
The ward referendum was one of the hot topics being discussed and followed by council chamber spectators.
“You’ve got to be here, this is where the action is,” was Vern Anderson’s comment as he watched the new votes being added to the projected results. “I voted for everything,” Anderson added when asked if he took part in voting in the ward referendum.
“It’s surprising that more people still don’t get out to vote, but I did find the ward system vote interesting,” Anderson added on the ward referendum vote. “I’d say I’m quite pleased with the results, so far.”
This is the central place for me tonight,” Scott Wilson said. “I’m very curious to see how the ward vote goes tonight.”
