Atchison wins mayor's race in Saskatoon
Following a see-saw battle for mayor in Saskatoon, incumbent Don Atchison came out on top over challenger Tom Wolf.
With 67 out of 67 polls reporting, Atchison had 34,489 votes while Tom Wolf had 31,085.
The third candidate, Clay Mazurkewich, had 605 votes.
Atchison said his win is a sign that people in the city like the direction it's headed.
And says the close result will not be reflected in policies down the road.
"We had more votes than the other people had. All right? The majority of people said, we're on the right page. That's where we're going."
It wasn't all smooth sailing on election night for Atchison. The first poll results had Atchison on top and Wolf second, but that changed a few minutes later. A few minutes after that, Atchison reclaimed the lead.
He finished with 52 per cent of the vote, while Wolf received 47 per cent and Mazurkewich had about 1 per cent.
In the wards, seven out of the eight incumbents who were running were re-elected. Ward 10's Bev Dubois was the only incumbent who lost. Zach Jeffries won in that ward. Also new to council will be Troy Davies in Ward 4 and Eric Olauson in Ward 8.
