    Following a byelection held Oct. 6, Brian God-lonton is Rimbeys newest town councillor.

    Godlonton won the byelection with 166 votes. Ben Nesbitt, who also let his name stand for the po-sition, garnered 102 votes.

    Godlongton, who will be sworn in at the council meeting on Wed., Oct. 15 is excited about his win.

    I am pleased; very pleased, he said. Its a new challenge and I look forward to it.

    Godlongton said he visited about 70 homes dur-ing his campaign and while people are fairly happy with the status quo, most agreed attracting more businesses would be positive for the town.

    Everybody wants to see the town grow, he said.Ben Nesbitt wishes Godlongton well in his new

    position.Im sure he will do a good job. It was a cordial

    election. We shook hands in advance (before the bal-lots were counted).

    Nesbitt is not ready to completely give up on mu-nicipal politics and has not ruled out running in the next election.

    I need a little more time for campaigning. I plan to be better prepared next time, he said.

    The declining business community prompted Godlonton to make the decision to run for council.

    I keep looking at those empty buildings and it scares me, he said in an earlier interview.

    However, Godlonton believes Rimbey has great potential as a community.

    It has been here for a hundred plus years for no reason, he said.

    The hospital and longterm care centre are pri-mary examples of the positives the town has to offer, he said.

    Not too many communities have a hospital like we do, he said.
