The Vil­lage of Car­bon has a new coun­cil­lor as Deb­o­rah Anne Dun­ford has been ac­claimed.

This comes after Deputy Mayor Kelly Gar­rett an­nounced her res­ig­na­tion on June 17 of this year. She was elected in the 2017 mu­nic­i­pal elec­tion.

Dun­ford is re­tired and has lived in Car­bon for about four years. In that time, she has be­come in­volved in the com­mu­nity. That is one of the rea­sons she put her name in to be a coun­cil­lor.

“I wanted to get more in­volved in the com­mu­nity and see how it works,” she said.

Since she has been in Car­bon she has been ac­tive on Cit­i­zens on Pa­trol.

“I am pretty open to things and I like to get in­volved in the com­mu­nity, I am a vol­un­teer,” she said. “I think I can bring a fresh look at things.”

“I have never done any­thing like this but I have been on com­mit­tees, but noth­ing political, so this is new to me.”

Her first meet­ing was a spe­cial meet­ing on Au­gust 8 to dis­cuss a land mat­ter. Her ac­cla­ma­tion was an­nounced on so­cial me­dia on July 24.
