CORNWALL Ontario – CFN reached former City Councilor Denis Carr in Newcastle UK today and asked him if he was prepared to serve again after the announcement of Brock Frost’s resignation.
He took a moment from the family trip to share that he would be prepared to discuss it as he’d have to adjust some of his other commitments. Carr is President of the Cornwall & Area Chamber of Commerce and still leads Heart of the City.
He finished twelfth in the 10 person race for City Councilor. Guy St. Jean, who finished 11th, moved to the US with his husband this disqualifying him for consideration.
According to the Municipal Act Council has the option of offering the seat to someone that offered themselves for office, usually the next on the list, or calling a by election.
His son Jamie Carr, former local Corus radio announcer added that he’d be proud and happy to see his dad serve again and proud and happy if he didn’t.
Carr would be replacing Brock Frost who is resigning as of July 1st according to media reports after multiple scandals and lawsuits. (none of which have been proven in court except the one lawsuit he issued but forgot to serve against the editor of CFN which he has to pay costs for)
