The Village of MacNutt has two residents running for the position of Mayor, Bryan Olimb and Shayne Wagner. Both have been involved with the council, and both have been Mayor in the past. Here is an introduction to the Village of MacNutt Mayor Candidates.

Bryan introduced himself by saying, “My name is Bryan Olimb and I am the current Mayor of Macnutt.” Olimb has resided in MacNutt with his wife for the last twelve years.

Speaking about why he chose to run for the mayor position, Olimb said, “In the last four years, myself and council have handled many obstacles set forth in our path and have been successful and I would like to continue down this positive path into the future.”

Speaking about goals for the next four years, he said, “There are many ideas I would like to focus on in the next four years, but most importantly our infrastructure and our community rink, and the renovations it needs. I hope to be chosen to represent this beautiful community of Macnutt that I call home.”

Shane introduced himself by saying, “My name is Shayne Wagner. My occupation is an apiarist (beekeeper) at Wendell Honey Farm for 24 years and I have lived in MacNutt for as long as I have been married to my loving wife Rachel.”

When asked why he chose to run for mayor, Wagner said, “Several people have come up to me to run again. In a small village, there are not very many people willing to be on the council, to make some hard choices and to have common sense!”

Other influencing reasons included, “The council that is in previously, and raising taxes on some people. Fifty percent of people have asked me to be mayor again to have some common sense when it comes to making these decisions that are as unpopular such as ageing infrastructure, and with everything else going on in this world they don’t need taxes to be one of those!”

Wagner’s goals for the next four years include, “My wish is to balance both keeping taxes reasonable and also keeping our finances in the black for when the time comes to replace ageing infrastructure, and also before making these hard decisions asking the few people in a small community for their input!”
