City of Bathurst swears in its newest councillor

Bathurst's newest councillor took his oath of office on Monday night.

Jeff Glendenning won his seat in a byelection last month and replaces former councillor Bernie Cormier who stepped down to take a job with Opportunities New Brunswick.

Mayor Paolo Fongemie says Glendenning's background makes him ideal to tackle portfolios dealing with youth issues as well as economic development.

Glendenning says he's glad to finally get started and looks forward to tackling council business.
