Bathurst has previously had its own prime minister in Ben Chifley and new Bathurst Youth Council deputy mayor Josh Borland has a long term goal of taking the head office.
Mr Borland, was who was recently elected to the council for a second term last month, has been announced as the new deputy mayor, to serve alongside mayor Zoe Peters.
With an ambition for law and politics, he has some big hopes and dreams.
"An end goal for me would be to go into prosecution I reckon. It's really fun," he said.
"You see it on TV with all the lawyer stuff and it can look a bit scary, but it's something I really want to do. Down the track, I might go into politics, become prime minister. Who knows.
"I've also been doing speech and drama and acting since I was a little kid. Getting on the stage and performing is something I've always loved and now that I'm really focused on academic things at school, I've really wanted to go into law for a while now."

Mr Borland said he's enjoyed the time on youth council so far and is keen to serve in a new way this term as the deputy mayor.
"I made so many friends that I still talk to that aren't back on council this year. It's a really amazing opportunity to make friends," he said.
"Being really interested politics and government, and potentially going into law, it's given me a real good understanding of what involves local government, to help run Bathurst.
"It's a really good initiative and it's really fun. We get to have fun events too like the movies, helping plan colour runs. It's a ball and I'd really encourage anyone to do it.
"I'm glad to back and back into a leadership position, which I've worked hard for. I'm really glad others can see my passion for Bathurst and the youth, to really help push through these initiatives."
Taking on the new role as youth mayor, Mr Borland said he wants to make sure that his fellow youth councillors have their opinions heard.
"I'm really making it my mission that all the youth councillors are going to be in contact, that they have their opinion heard," he said.
"Zoe is also quite busy, She's the captain of Bathurst High, so I really want to make sure I'm here to support her and I can really help fund these initiatives, start conversations but also make sure administrative things get done.
Mr Borland is also a prefect at his school - St Stanislaus' College - as well as being captain of the tennis team.
"I'm also a dance teacher at my dance studio, so that's a really good way I can help people there," he said.
"I also do a few other things being a prefect, but I also go and volunteer at the local primary schools doing youth ministering."
