Norma Blissett has been re-elected to Cranbrook city council, earning 69.4 per cent of the vote with 3,147 votes.

Blissett was elected to her first term back in 2014.

She said she’s excited to work with the new council.

“It will be great to have some new people on council to add some fresh ideas and I think we got a good mix of people with experience and new people,” Blissett said.

“I’m expecting good things from this council.”

“Clearly the voters are saying it’s time for a change and I look forward to that and working with mayor Wayne Price.”

She hopes that some of the projects approved by council will be able to benefit the community soon.

“I’m hoping that we’re going to see some progress with the homeless shelter and I think that will help the situation that we’re facing as a community,” she added.

“I expect that some of the multi-family buildings that we approved will be constructed and that will help with the housing issue.”

Blissett was elected to council with incumbents Ron Popoff, Wesly Graham and Mike Peabody, newcomer Lynnette Wray and former mayor Wayne Stetski.
