Reid stay­ing out of elec­tions

Stanstead Journal - - NEWS - Vic­to­ria Vanier

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.
