Winnipeg’s city council will have five fresh faces after the 2018 civic election, along with 10 incumbents.

The new members all come from wards where incumbents chose not to run.

All incumbents in the running kept their seats, apart from former councillor Shawn Dobson.

Dobson lost a race to rival incumbent Scott Gillingham in St. James after changes to Winnipeg’s ward boundaries eliminated his former ward of St. Charles.

Here are the new faces bound for city hall:

Sherri Rollins — Fort Rouge-East Fort Garry.
Markus Chambers — St. Norbert-Seine River.
Shawn Nason — Transcona.
Vivian Santos — Point Douglas.
Kevin Klein — Charleswood-Tuxedo.

The following incumbent councillors will return to the fold:

Brian Mayes — St. Vital ward.
Jeff Browaty — North Kildonan.
Matt Allard — St. Boniface ward.
Ross Eadie — Mynarski.
Scott Gillingham — St. James.
John Orlikow — River Heights-Fort Garry.
Cindy Gilroy — Daniel McIntyre.
Jason Schreyer — Elmwood-East Kildonan.
Devi Sharma — Old Kildonan.
Incumbent Scott Gillingham defeated rival incumbent Shawn Dobson in the newly expanded St. James ward — previously St. James-Brooklands-Weston.

Gillingham and Dobson both joined council following their wins in the 2014 civic election.

The councillors will be joined by Coun. Janice Lukes, who was acclaimed for the new Waverley Westward when no other candidate registered to run there.
