Saint Lazare’s elected officials greet residents
Opposition candidates skip gathering
Incumbent Saint Lazare mayor Robert Grimaudo joined four of his six town councillors Saturday during an official meet and greet with more than 50 Saint Lazare residents.
The Nov. 9 event, held during the morning at Chez Maurice restaurant and bar, was open to any residents interested in speaking with the municipal officials, who were sworn in during a Nov. 8 ceremony.
Grimaudo was joined by councillors Lise Jolicoeur (Dist. 1,) Pamela Tremblay (Dist. 2,) Serge David (Dist. 5,) and Richard Nataf (Dist. 6).
Though they had also been invited, councillors Brigitte Asselin (Dist. 3) and Denis Briard, both of whom ran under the Alliance Saint-Lazare banner during the election, did not attend Saturday’s public gathering. Grimaudo defeated Alliance Saint-Lazare mayoral candidate Michel Lambert during the Nov. 3 election.
A spokesperson for the town did not say why the two councillors were missing from the meeting.
For his Grimaudo has said every elected councillor will be welcomed at all working tables and caucus meetings.
The new team is expected to get to work right away on such dossiers as tabling a budget, discussing plans to build a roundabout in Saint Lazare, and funding the building of a new fire station. The next council meeting will take place on Nov. 19.
The mayor and members of council say they welcome all residents’ comments or concerns and can be reached through email at:
