Reid to run again
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.
Orford MNA Pierre Reid, seen here at his investiture, will run for a fourth time in the next provincial election.
