1906 Edmonton municipal election

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The 1906 municipal election was held December 10, 1906 for the purpose of electing a mayor and five aldermen to sit on the Edmonton City Council, as well as five public school trustees and six separate school trustees. There were eight aldermen on city council, but three of the positions were already filled: Robert Manson, Joseph Henri Picard, and Samuel Smith had been elected to two-year terms in 1905, and were still in office. William Antrobus Griesbach had also been elected to a two-year term, but resigned to run for mayor. Accordingly, the fifth place aldermanic candidate in the 1906 election - Morton MacAuley - was elected only to serve out the remaining year of Griesbach's term.
