Edmonton Councillor Loken to seek re-election
EDMONTON – Ward 3 City Councillor Dave Loken revealed Monday he will run for re-election in October’s municipal election.
The first-term councillor says he will help keep projects council has been working on – like LRT expansion, neighborhood rehabilitation, downtown rejuvenation and public services – on track through the next council term.
Loken was part of several committees, including the Edmonton Police Commission, Donate-a-Ride Steering Committee, REACH, and Winter Cities.
Within Ward 3, Loken has advocated the planning for northern LRT expansion, funding for playgrounds and parks projects, and scheduling rehabilitation under the Neighbourhood Renewal program for several neighbourhoods.
“If elected, I will continue serving the residents of Ward 3 – and all Edmontonians – by keeping our city moving forward and making sure that the City provides all the vital services that impact the day-to-day lives of our citizens,” said Loken in a news release.
At the end of May, Councillor Amarjeet Sohi announced he would not run for mayor, but would be seeking re-election as councillor in Ward 12.
Councillor Kerry Diotte has already announced he will be running for mayor. Mayor Stephen Mandel will not be seeking re-election.
