Reid staying out of elections
Although he is pleased with the participation of many candidates in the municipal elections, Orford MNA Pierre Reid intends to remain neutral until voting day on November 3rd.
“It is a question of respect towards these men and women who become involved to give direction to our democracy. Furthermore, I think that this duty to remain neutral will improve the collaboration between the two levels of government, provincial and municipal, following the election,” said Mr. Reid.
The Orford deputy will remain neutral also out of respect for the many organizers who shoulder the candidates and who, as volunteers, try to convince the most number of citizens to share their choice.
“On November 4th, I will be available to collaborate actively, as I have done since 2003, with each person that the population chooses to represent them. In the meantime, I wish that all the candidates have a chance to make known their opinions on the issues that affect our citizens.”
In this vein, the Orford deputy is very happy to see that many regional issues that he is concerned about are already appearing regularly in communications from the candidates, such as social, economic, cultural, heritage, and touristic programs, not to mention sports tourism.
