Bay Roberts lawyer seek­ing Lib­eral Party pres­i­dency

The Compass - - OPINION -

Judy Mor­row would like to re­or­ga­nize the Lib­eral party of New­found­land and Labrador at the grass­roots level.

That’s one of the rea­sons the Bay Roberts lawyer and long time party or­ga­nizer is plan­ning to seek the of­fice of party pres­i­dent next month.

As pres­i­dent, Mor­row says her goals would also be to “im­prove the party’s fi­nan­cial po­si­tion, an draw on the knowl­edge and skills of our ex­pe­ri­enced mem­bers, while. . at­tract­ing new, young and en­er­getic in­di­vid­u­als to the party.”

Mor­row says she also be­lieves it is im­por­tant that the pro­vin­cial party “work closely with the Lib­eral Party of Canada so that we can ad­vance the in­ter­ests of the prov­ince at the na­tional level.”

Mor­row grad­u­ated from Memo­rial Uni­ver­sity with a Bach­e­lor of Com­merce (Hons) in 1982 and from Dal­housie Uni- ver­sity in 1985 with a Bach­e­lor of Laws. She served as vicechair of the Board of New­found­land and Labrador Le­gal Aid Com­mis­sion in­clud­ing chair­ing its Ap­peal Board and was also chief ad­ju­di­ca­tor with the New­found­land and Labrador Rights Com­mis­sion for a num­ber of years.

Grow­ing up in Spa­niard’s Bay and cur­rently liv­ing in Bay Roberts, Mor­row has al­ways been an ac­tive vol­un­teer in her com­mu­nity serv­ing on town Com­mit­tees, school coun­cils and youth or­ga­ni­za­tions.

For the past 20 years Mor­row and her hus­band Bill have been prac­tic­ing law at their firm Mor­row and Mor­row in Bay Roberts. The cou­ple has two chil­dren, Neil 19 and Aaron, 16.

The Lib­eral Party will elect a new pres­i­dent dur­ing its an­nual gen­eral meet­ing and con­ven­tion to be held May 2224 at Ho­tel Gan­der.
