Announcement from Ward 8 City Councillor Sarina Gersher


Today I am announcing that I will not be seeking re-election in the upcoming municipal election. 

It has been an incredible privilege to represent Ward 8 neighbours at City Hall for the past eight years. Together we have been able to make change in many areas, including neighborhood safety; renewed investment in infrastructure for roads, sidewalks, parks and waste management; and support for the local economy and environment. We have done this by staying connected with one another. Thank you for always making sure to share your thoughts with me and engage in dialogue about our city and community. 

Working in a political environment can come with challenges but I have been very grateful to work with this Council and Administration. Together, we have worked towards building a vision and path that is best for the residents of Saskatoon. I am so proud of our progress on reconciliation and inclusion, planning for the city’s future growth by focusing on new transit corridors, balancing infill and new development, and the future Bus Rapid Transit system. We have laid a foundation for climate action and protection of green spaces like Meewasin. I believe that we have focused on delivering our core services while still planning for a resilient future. 

Thank you to the neighbours of Brevoort Park, Briarwood, Brighton, College Park, East College Park, Greystone Heights, Hillcrest Management Area, Holmwood Development Area and Wildwood for your support over these past eight years. It has been an honour to be your Ward 8 City Councillor.
