The veteran KO’d the wannabe in St. Vital on Wednesday night.

Gord Steeves, who has been on Winnipeg city council for 10 years, won his fourth election, easily defeating Harry Wolbert by a margin of 14,960 to 3,207.

“I hope it means people have confidence in me. I hope it means people respect the kind of leadership I’ve offered St. Vital,” Steeves said in a telephone interview.

Steeves’ name has long been bandied about as a mayoral contender. But he said it is too soon to think about 2014.

“The question has come up,” he admitted.

Wolbert, 49, is an active provincial Liberal party member and longtime social activist.

St. Vital is the city’s most populous ward, with 50,000 residents.

Steeves won 82 per cent of the vote Wednesday.
