Moesker secured 192 votes, clinching the victory over his closest rival, Sarah Fotty, who garnered 142 votes. The race also saw Anna-Marie Loomis achieving 92 votes, Glen Waskewitch with 73 votes, and Stella Herron with 35 votes.

In a facebook past after the announcement was made public, Moesker said, "It was an honour to run with Sarah, Anna-Marie, Glen, and Stella in this by-election. Democracy is best served when there is a slate of quality candidates to choose from. I hope we can stay in touch, and I hope you’ll all consider running again."

This victory comes as a significant achievement for Moesker, who previously contested in the 2022 by-election, finishing second to current councillor Dale N. Shippelt. Moesker's persistence and dedication to serving the community have paid off with his triumph in this election. Mayor Debbie Baich congratulated the new incoming councillor, "Congratulations to our new council member Ken Moesker ! Looking forward to working together". Councillor Lee Philips congratulated Councillor-elect Moesker on his win in a social media post, "Congratulations Ken! You will be a great addition to council!" Councillor Tina Hutchinson also offered her congratulations to the new councillor in a social media post.

Moesker's win marks the second by-election in Rocky Mountain House since the municipal election in 2021.

The official results of the by-election are set to be posted on the Town's website on Friday, March 1st.
