Lopez Elected in Border City Byelection



In a decisive display of civic engagement, more than 1,600 residents of Lloydminster, Alberta/Saskatchewan, exercised their voting rights in the byelection held this past Tuesday.


David Lopez emerged victorious, securing 736 votes, which accounted for 45 per cent of the total votes cast. Lopez’s impressive mandate saw him nearly clinching nearly half of the votes, a testament to his widespread appeal among the electorate.


Lopez is slated to be sworn in at City Hall on Tuesday, February 20, 2024, with his inaugural council meeting scheduled for Monday, February 26, 2024. His election comes on the heels of former Councillor Aaron Buckingham's resignation to assume the role of the city's new Fire Chief, necessitating the byelection.


The competitive race featured eight candidates vying for the councillor position, with Lopez emerging as the frontrunner. His closest competitor, Fred Sirett, garnered 367 votes, underscoring Lopez’s significant lead in the race.


Lopez will have a short honeymoon on council as municipal elections are scheduled across Saskatchewan and Lloydminster on Nov. 13 of this year.
