Global News has declared incumbent Mairin Loewen re-elected in Saskatoon’s Ward 7.

Ward 7 is one of two wards along the southern boundary of the city east of the South Saskatchewan River.

The ward boundaries have changed due to the review of all city wards by the Municipal Wards Commission with Eastview moving from Ward 7 to Ward 9.

Neighbourhoods in the ward: Adelaide/Churchill, Avalon, Exhibition, Nutana Park, Queen Elizabeth, Stonebridge and The Willows.

The ward also includes the Diefenbaker management area and CN industrial.

Mairin Loewen has represented the ward since 2011.
