Laura Dudas will represent Innes ward for the next four years, according to the unofficial results.

With all 96 polls counted, Dudas has 41.4 per cent of the vote and a more than 1,600-vote lead over her closest rival, Donna Leith-Gudbranson.

"I'm just so excited I can barely talk," Dudas said soon after the results poured in.

Dudas says she's excited to represent her constituents.

"Even after having lost last time I went right back into the community, continue to volunteer, be engaged and I really wanted to make sure I represented the needs of our area," Dudas said.

"I cannot wait to get to work for this area."

In March, Jody Mitic announced he would not seek re-election in order to focus on his family and personal health. In June, a formal leave of absence was approved, and three other councillors took over his files.

The other two candidates who fought Dudas and Leith-Gudbranson for the seat were Tammy Lynch and François Trépanier.

The city clerk is expected to declare the official results by Thursday.
