The results are in: Thousands of residents vote in the first-ever “Name the Plow” contest

Following weeks of anticipation and more than 4,000 votes, Saint John residents have chosen the names they want to see on eight of the City’s snowplows. In a special announcement this morning on 97.3 The Wave, Saint John Mayor Donna Reardon helped share the results of the City’s first-ever Name the Plow contest.  

“We are happy to see that so many people not only embraced the Name the Plow contest, but truly made it their own and ran with it,” says Saint John Mayor Donna Reardon. “It really was fun to witness the uptake of the contest and to have the very clever short list of names revealed, and now the winning names announcedThe creativity and enthusiasm of residents is wonderful; we can all use some lighthearted fun to help us get through the winter months and Saint John residents certainly rose to the challenge.” 

The eight names that received the most votes are:   

  • Kevin 
  • Plow Chicka Plow Plow 
  • Skip the Ditches 
  • Nor'easter Beaster 
  • Reversing Snowfalls 
  • Port City Pusher 
  • Froster Thurston 
  • Fast and Flurrious 

The winning names will be displayed on eight of the City’s street and sidewalk plows in the coming weeks. The City will be posting photos and updates on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram, as the newly named plows, and their drivers, continue to work hard to clear snow throughout Saint John. 

The City thanks 97.3 The Wave for their partnership on this family-friendly contest.
