O’Brien acclaimed as Carbon Councillor
The Village of Carbon has a new councillor after Renee O’Brien was acclaimed.
Nomination Day was Thursday, July 12, and O’Brien put her hat in the ring and was uncontested.
This comes after a turbulent time in Carbon which saw three Councillors and a CAO resign. The most recently, long time councillor and mayor Guss Nash an- nounced his resignation.
O’Brien is a long time resident. She graduated from Carbon School and is now raising her family in the community. She has an ex- tensive volunteerism background and has sat on many boards and groups in the community including the Carbon Library Board, the skatepark and Rec Board, to name a few.
“I feel that by me becoming a council member, I am able to learn more about our community and represent it in a positive way! Carbon has many great qualities and I want to help add more to that list,” she said.
