1901 Edmonton municipal election

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The 1901 municipal election was held December 9, 1901 for the purpose of electing a mayor and four aldermen to sit on the Edmonton Town Council, as well as five public school trustees and five separate school trustees.

There were six aldermanic positions on the council at the time, but two of them were already filled: William Thomas Henry and Joseph Morris had both been elected for a two-year term in 1900, and were still in office. Henry Goodridge had also been elected for a two-year term, but had resigned; accordingly, one of the positions up for election in 1901 - the one filled by Goodridge himself - was for only a one-year term.
