The Drumheller Mail - - NEWS - Pa­trick Ko­lafa The Drumheller Mail Re­nee O’Brien…

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.
