Many supporters were excited:
So happy that you continue to be our mayor ????

Even though I don’t live there anymore, glad to see @nenshi winning the mayoral race in Calgary. One of the best mayors I’ve ever had.

I didn’t vote for you this time, hopefully you’ll hear those of us with a different vision for the city. That said, congratulations.
