Reid to run again

Stanstead Journal - - FROM PAGE ONE - Ma­gog

Or­fordMNA Pierre Reid is not ready to quit pol­i­tics. “It is a big priv­i­lege to present my­self as the can­di­date for the Que­bec Lib­eral Party in the rid­ing of Or­ford for the next elec­tions. I have been very present in my role as deputy since 2003 and I love the peo­ple of my county. De­spite the num­ber of projects that I con­trib­uted to with the sup­port of cit­i­zens and re­gional au­thor­i­ties, I know there is still work to be done to en­sure a sta­ble eco­nomic sit­u­a­tion for my fel­low cit­i­zens and their fam­i­lies and that re­mains my first pri­or­ity,” said Mr. Reid dur­ing his nom­i­na­tion meet­ing which was held on May 14th in Or­ford.

So­cial de­vel­op­ment also oc­cu­pies an im­por­tant place in his pri­or­i­ties. “We need to de­velop wealth by de­vel­op­ing the econ­omy, but we must also dis­trib­ute this wealth fairly among the pop­u­la­tion with­out for­get­ting the cit­i­zens and fam­i­lies who need it most.”

Mr. Reid is very mo­ti­vated by the new Or­ford County rid­ing that now has ten mu­nic­i­pal­i­ties, all within the Mem­phrem­a­gog MRC. “My in­ten­tion is to be as present in these mu­nic­i­pal­i­ties as I have been through­out my county since I be­came the deputy,” com­mented Mr. Reid. The Sher­brooke bor­oughs of Rock For­est, Saint Elie and Deauville are no longer in the Or­ford rid­ing.
