The votes are in for St. John’s new Ward 4 Councillor, and former councillor Sheilagh O’Leary earned more of them than all other candidates combined. 

As she told Happy City St. John’s, “I live and love public service. I am experienced and committed. I have proven myself to be responsive to the needs of the community and its residents, both on and off St. John’s City Council in my 25 plus years of advocacy and community service.”

O’Leary has said her previous experience as a councillor has taught her a lot about “how to work with the community and navigate the system, and that’s a must for any councillor. As our city grows and changes we need a council that is productive and effective, but even more we need councillors who bring vision to plan our growth and adapt to the continuous change we are facing, particularly in these fiscally challenging times.”
