Mayor Wayne Stetski offered his congratulations to the winners of Saturday’s election and his thoughts on the campaign and community in a post on his campaign Facebook page Sunday.
“Congratulations to Lee, Tom, Ron, Isaac, Danielle, Norma and Wes for forming the next administration — I will be watching with interest,” Stetski wrote.
“It will be challenging for you to fulfill your election promises and still move Cranbrook forward but I do wish you all the best.
“I was surprised by last night’s outcome but there is an old saying that the people are always right. The test for politicians comes two or three years after election day — if people will still say publicly that they voted for you you’re likely doing an okay job!
“We live in a community of caring citizens and I want to say thank you to all of the great people that I had the pleasure to meet and to work with over the last three years. For those of you whom I did not meet, my door was always open to you.
“My wish is that the Mayor’s office continues to be a respectful, transparent, open and accessible place where every citizen’s voice is welcome to be heard!
“I remain your Mayor until December 8 — feel free to stop by City Hall for a chat.”
Stetski was elected in the 2011 municipal election.
