Keren Tang Will Run Again in Ward 11
Edmonton – The results are in, and Keren Tang had a very strong showing in the Ward 11 election for City Council.
4,361 voters cast their ballots in favour of Keren, who ran to replace Mike Nickel. Nickel garnered 9,148 votes.
“I was excited at the prospect of representing the people of Ward 11,” says Keren Tang. “This is an incredible ward, that I’ve come to know relatively well in this past year and a half. Many thanks to all of the people who placed their confidence in me – I will do my very best to continue to be a strong voice for everyone in this Ward.”
“Our showing tonight is a testament to the type of city we live in - one with an engaged citizenry, that is open-minded, inclusive, and energetic. This was my vision for the campaign. This showing signifies that this message is resonating with the residents of our great city.”
“By running, I have been successful at participating in a healthy democracy, holding current City Councilors to account, and talking about the issues that are important to the people of Edmonton. With my energetic team, we pushed the incumbent to work for his seat and be a better politician, which is what we should be doing in a healthy democracy - we should be pushing those representing us to earn their elected positions. Congratulations to Mike Nickel on his return City Council,” said Tang.
“I am extremely proud of everything our team has accomplished. We ran a campaign that embodies how we would like to see council function and the role of a councillor - one who is connected to the people, one who builds relationships based on trust and mutual respect. We ran a campaign that is fiscally responsible, transparent and accountable to voters, reaching over 18,000 doorsteps and listening to what our citizens care about,” said Tang. “I would like to give a big thanks to my amazing team of volunteers who made all of this possible. I am constantly floored at the dedication you all have shown. We will regroup and get ready for the next election,” concluded Tang.
