MacNutt elected to Delia Council
The Village of Delia has a new face around the council table.
The Village held a byelection after the departure of Yvon Fournier on February 15 of this year. While the next municipal election is slated for this coming October, the village opted not to request a deferral and scheduled the election for May 16.
Two candidates stepped up and Jordan MacNutt was selected on 38 of the 68 ballots cast, winning over Irene Arnold.
MacNutt says her inspiration to run for Council comes from wanting to be more involved in the community.
“My boyfriend and I moved to town about four or five years ago,” she said. “I have gone to almost every council meeting and want- ed to get more involved in my community. We bought a house and we plan to live here for a very long time and raise a family here.” MacNutt brings some youth to the council chamber at age 26. While often people say that young people don’t get involved, she sees many of her generation busy in the community.
“We don’t have a very young population in town and those who are younger are involved in many things, but I felt we needed someone younger on council,” she said. She adds that it is an opportune time for her to run.
“It is good opportunity for someone to get in there because it’s only four months long. For someone that doesn’t know anything about being on council, it is a good chance to learn more about it.”
