Video: Candidates wait with bated breath for election results

Council hopefuls gather around the city to watch the votes come in

Mayoral, council and trustee candidates have gathered at several election night parties around Richmond waiting to see who gets enough votes to make the cut.

Incumbent Mayor Malcolm Brodie is stationed at Four Points Sheraton Vancouver Airport hotel, watching the election that could made him the longest-serving mayor in Richmond’s history.

Council and Trustee candidates with Richmond First have come together at the party’s office near Lansdowne Centre. The party controls three seats in council right now, and those three incumbents, councillors Linda McPhail, Derek Dang and Bill McNulty, are all hoping to get re-elected.

Richmond Community Coalition candidates are watching from their office near the Richmond Oval, where incumbent councillors Chak Au and CKen Johnston are hoping they get to return to council.

The eight candidates on the RITE-RCA (Richmond Citizens’ Association) coalition are at the Richmond Curling Centre, where incumbent councillors Carol Day (RITE) and Harold Steves (RCA) hope they’ll also hang onto their seats.
