    Two candidatesto run in towncouncil byelection

    By Treena Mielke

    At least two Rimbey residents will vie for a po-sition on town council in upcoming byelection.

    Ben Nesbitt and Brian Godlonton have both an-nounced a decision to run for council.

    Nesbitt, who grew up on a farm south of town and completed his schooling here has a strong attachment to Rimbey.

    My grandparents from both sides all lived in Rimbey and I under-stand how important it is to listen to the seniors and learn what their needs are.

    However, keeping young people here is also important and the key to keeping the com-munity alive and vital, he said.

    I would like to see us attract new families and bring more new people in.

    Nesbitt and his partner Liberty Matthews are expecting a baby in January and he would like to see council focus on developing more activities for young families.

    If the kids arent happy it gives the parents more incentive to leave.

    Nesbitt who has been a member of the Rimbey Volunteer Fire Department for several years said he is an extravert who enjoys making a difference in a positive way.

    I enjoy talking to people, listening to their con-cerns and helping them if I can.

    Nesbit worked for Rimbey TV for 10 years and is now employed by Platinum Communications as a field technician.

    Keeping the line on spending is also important to Nesbitt, who expressed some concern over the money council spent for a consultant.

    There may have been a better way to deal with that situation. Were not Edmonton. Were not Red Deer.

    The declining business community has prompt-ed Brian Godlonton to step up to the plate and run for council.

    I keep looking at those empty buildings and it scares me.

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

    It hasnt 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 of-fer, he said.

    Not too many communities have a hospital

    like we do, he said.Good schools, Pas Ka Poo Park and the truck

    museum are other assets the town can take pride in, he said.

    Godlonton is originally from southern Sas-katchewan. He came to Rimbey in 1995 when he managed the Fields store. He was transferred to Cranbrook, B.C. in 1996, but returned in 98 and went to work for Longvista Transport in Ponoka. In 2012 he was hired by Rimbey Co-op as petroleum manager.

    Godlonton has two adult children, Geoff, who is attending NAIT in Edmonton and studying car-pentry engineering and Kim who is a stay at home mom living in Ponoka. He has two granddaughters.
