Edmonton municipal election, 1910

Edmonton municipal election, 1910

The 1910 municipal election was held December 12 1910 for the purpose of electing a mayor and five aldermen to sit on the Edmonton City Council, as well as three public school trustees and five separate school trustees. There were also four proposed bylaws put to a vote of the electorate concurrently with the election.

Positions to be elected

There were eight aldermen on city council, but three of the positions were already filled: James Hyndman, John H. Millar, and James Mould had been elected to two year terms in 1909 and were still in office. George S. Armstrong had also been elected to a two year term, but had resigned to run for mayor. Accordingly, the fifth place finisher in the 1910 election - James McKinley - was elected to a one year term to complete Armstrong's aldermanic term.

There were six trustees on the public board of trustees, but three of the positions were already occupied: A Butchart, Arthur Cushing, and William Ferris had been elected to two year terms in 1909 and were still in office.
