Municipal Election Review

October 27, 2021

Election Day for the 2021 Municipal Election was October 18th. With the official results now in, the Lethbridge & District Labour Council is proud to have endorsed a number of candidates and congratulates those who were elected.

A special thanks to those candidates who were endorsed by our members for your hard work.

Congratulations to Allison Purcell and Kristina Larkin on your election as Trustees on the Lethbridge Public School Board!

Congratulations to Belinda Crowson on your re-election to City Council!

Voter turnout in Lethbridge went up slightly this election, but is still low at 35% compared to 31% in 2017. It is important that eligible voters have a say in who makes decisions on our behalf at election time, and it’s equally important that our elected representatives hear from us in between elections as well. 

Find out more about our new City Council and make sure they know what’s important to you, whether you voted for them or not. We need to make sure our voices are part of important budget decisions coming up, as well as conversations about public services and infrastructure. The direction our city takes and the impacts on working people will be a direct result of the decisions of our City Council.

Our Labour Council will advocate for good jobs, reliable public services, and affordability for all residents of Lethbridge. We will engage with our local leaders to push for the things that make our communities healthy and sustainable and we encourage you to reach out.
