Incumbent Rossmere MLA Andrew Micklefield won a second term in the legislature on Sept. 10.

“I’m very pleased, and humbled,” Micklefield said at HalfTime Sports Bar on Gateway Road, where he gathered with family, friends, and supporters as the polls closed. “I think the proof is in the results this evening.”

First elected in 2016, Micklefield served as legislative assistant to the health minister and as government house leader. During his campaign this summer, he promised to “continue to advocate for the people of Rossmere” if re-elected.

“That’s what I’ve been doing, and that’s what I want to keep doing,” he told The Herald. “I’m looking forward to rolling up my sleeves and getting back to work.”

Andy Regier, the NDP candidate for Rossmere, gave Micklefield a run for his money in what turned out to be a tight race.

“The result was not what we hoped for or worked so hard far, but the margins show we’re growing, and we’re delivering our message,” said Regier, who was an organizer of the Save the Concordia ER campaign, which hoped to put pressure on the government to re-open Concordia Hospital’s emergency department. “I’m proud of the work we’ve done, and this is a big step in the right direction.”

Amanda Bazan (Green Party) and Isaiah Oyeleru (Liberal) also ran unsuccessfully for election in Rossmere.
