Mayor’s Supper the usual hit
For years, the Coaticook Chamber of Commerce has organized an annual supper where the mayor can brag about his achievements in a friendlier setting than City Hall. Humour is expected, even with lame jokes.
Bertrand Lamoureux respected the rules but also took advantage of the event to confirm that he will run for another term as mayor. This fall he will have spent a quarter of a
century at City Hall, the first eighteen as a councillor and later as mayor. “I want to be there next year when my town will celebrate its one hundred and fiftieth birthday.”
The town’s financial situation is blessed by its own hydro system, which generated a healthy million and seven hundred thousand dollar profit. Furthermore, industries are flocking into Coaticook at a constant rate. McDonald’s, which has one of the best market research operations in the world, would not have approved a new standalone outlet if it didn’t see a good return on investment in moving its new franchise a couple of meters away from the old outlet.
The evening’s guests included the MRC prefect, Réjean Masson, and the Health Minister, Réjean Hébert, who made the round of all tables. He may have to face the electorate sooner than mayor Lamoureux, after all.
