Incumbent Malcolm Brodie has been elected as Mayor of the City of Richmond. He will be joined on Richmond City Council by six incumbent Councillors, along with newcomers Carol Day and Alexa Loo.
Brodie has served as Mayor of Richmond for 13 years since being elected to that post in a 2001 by-election. He had previously served as a Councillor from 1996 to 2001. The City of Richmond has only had three Mayors since 1974.
Mayor Malcolm Brodie was running against two opponents, Richard Lee and Le Feng (Cliff) Wei.
Lee was seeking to become the first Asian mayor in the city and he also ran against Brodie in 2011.
Incumbent Councillors Chak Au, Derek Dang, Ken Johnston, Bill McNulty, Linda McPhail and Harold Steves were all re-elected. They will be joined by Day, a former Richmond school trustee, and Loo, a two-time Olympic snowboarder.
Two incumbent members of Council, Evelina Halsey-Brandt and Linda Barnes, did not seek re-election.
Meanwhile, three incumbent school trustees, Donna Sargent, Debbie Tablotney and Eric Yung, were re-elected to Richmond School Board. They will be joined by new trustees Ken Hamaguichi, Jonathan Ho, Sandra Nixon and Alice S. Wong.
Voter turnout was approximately 32.4 per cent, with 40,245 ballots cast. 2011 voter turnout was 23.4 per cent.
