According to councillor Ed Sperling, the recent election was about financial responsibility.
 
"At the top of the election result list, you have an accountant (Brian Kelly) and you have a banker (Sperling), so our taxpayers are telling us what's important to them right now," explained Sperling. "I think that really defines what the next four years are going to look like."
 
Sperling is worried about the provincial government softening their stance on their $4-billion capital plan.
 
"Where does that put us in terms of our big project? Of course, which is the twinning of the bridge."
 
Residents followed that financial theme with a "no" vote on the new aquatics centre at the Dow Centennial Centre. Sperling attributed the vote to a lack of information on the project.
 
Sperling is the only returning councillor to be re-elected. In his second term, he'll serve with re-elected mayor Gale Katchur to guide the city through to 2021.
