Ron Oszust has won his race against Keith Hern to become Golden's next mayor.

Unofficial results show Oszust as Mayor

Town of Golden: The Star has learned Ron Oszust has won the Mayoral seat according to unofficial results.

Ron Oszust has won his bid for mayor over Keith Hern according to unofficial final results.

Oszust brings three years of council experience and 12 years as Director of Area A to the table as Golden’s next mayor. He ran on promises of transparency and honesty during the election campaign, while stressing a theme of optimism and hope for Golden’s future.

That message contrasted with Hern’s who spoke of what he considered to be the Town’s unstable financial state.

Oszust will be joined on council by incumbent councillors Chris Hambruch, Connie Barlow and Caleb Moss. Newcomers Eddie Leigan, Leslie Adams and Bruce Fairley (who won a close race against Lori Baxendale for Council’s final spot) will fill out the remaining seats to his left and right.

Final results:

1. Ron Oszust 848

2. Keith Hern 437

More to follow tomorrow.
