Richard Pootmans re-elected in Ward 6
This southwest riding saw a few candidates back on the ballot from previous elections
Richard Pootmans held off three challengers to win re-election in this riding, including former ward alderman Joe Connolly.
Pootmans is finishing his first term here after defeating nine other candidates in 2010.
One day, maybe, the southwest ring road will form the western boundary of this ward. While the LRT does run here now, there are still plenty of transportation and development issues on the west side.
