The Municipality of Chester has selected a new councillor after a position was left vacant by the provincial election in August.
Derek Wells is the new councillor for the municipality's District 3, a seat formerly held by Danielle Barkhouse.
Barkhouse recently became an MLA for the Progressive Conservatives, leaving her councillor position vacant.
Wells defeated two other candidates — Jo-Ann Grant and Annette Collicutt — in Saturday's byelection.
This byelection is one of several that have taken place this fall to fill municipal councillor vacancies across the province after the provincial election.
The Municipality of Clare will hold a byelection to elect a councillor on Nov. 20.
