Carrot River has a new councillor after its Oct. 23 byelection.

Dylan Borody, a heavy equipment operator, finished with 79 votes, only 10 ahead of Joseph Doerksen and 31 ahead of former Carrot River Fire Chief Scott Debiene.

The seat on council was available after Robin Horn resigned in June.

Borody told northeastNOW he wanted to run for council to make sure the town of Carrot River went in the right direction and to be involved in the community.

“I’m very community-minded,” Borody said. “I’m on the fire department and I like to be involved in community events. Council is something I’m interested in.”

Being invested in the community is the main thing Borody wants to bring to council, as he admitted he didn’t have a platform to campaign on.

“Going into it I didn’t have a personal platform for myself,” Borody said. “I didn’t have personal goals or aspirations that I wanted to achieve to make anything better for myself or my family.

“I’m going into it wanting an open mind and being a phone call away to the people in the Town of Carrot River. To take their opinions, explore and improve with them, and become one as a community.”

Nov. 8 is when Borody is expected to be sworn into council.
