Central Edmonton was due for at least a couple of shake ups Monday night with one long-term councillor retiring and another stepping down to compete instead in the mayoral race.

Ward 5

With former councillor Karen Leibovici running for mayor this term, Ward 5 was guaranteed to have a new representative on city council this election.

One of the tightest races of the night, Ward 5 was the last called, with businessman Michael Oshry winning a close race with 5,433 votes.

"I door-knocked a ton, I heard a lot of the issues," he said. "For me, I think they wanted a local presence and someone with business experience to help manage the city. The city has a lot of challenges, growth challenges. A lot of good things happening, though."

Jim Gibbon, the owner of Amber’s Brewery, came in second with 4,805 votes.

Ward 6

Scott McKeen

With 16 candidates running and long-time representative Jane Batty retiring from council this year, Ward 6 promised a lively race on election night.

The main race came down to a head-to-head between former Edmonton Journal city-hall columnist Scott McKeen and school board trustee Heather McKenzie.

McKeen took an early lead, winning by a margin of 1,654 votes.

After the results were announced, McKeen dapper in a bowtie  addressed the crowd over the sounds of “Good Vibrations,” to thank his supporters and volunteers.

"I think the experience I brought to this probably resonated with people," he said. "I did literally sit through hundreds of council meetings, so I know the place pretty well ... There probably was some name recognition. And I really did have a great campaign team."

Ward 7

Tony Caterina

Two-term council veteran Tony Caterina, first elected in 2007, was re-elected Monday night, besting opponent Dave Colburn, a high-profile public school trustee, by just over 1,000 votes when polls closed.

Ward 8

Ben Henderson

One of the most decisive victories of the 2013 municipal election was the win by Ward 8 incumbent Ben Henderson, who beat his closest competition by more than 12,000 votes.

Henderson has sat on council since 2007.
