Well wishes to Judy Foote
I was part of a small team that considered Grand Bank for new employment as part of the Dynamic Shelters Project in 2003.
Judy Foote, then a provincial minister, was the first person I met in Newfoundland before we initiated the project in Grand Bank.
She was attentive to our proposal to establish a manufacturing facility, and helped connect us the regional development authorities in Grand Bank and Marystown. She also was instrumental in helping us create a network of great people who ensured the successful early stages of manufacturing capabilities in Grand Bank.
Judy’s focus was always directed to the people of her constituency, ensuring they were heard and able to participate in the success of the province. I admired her commitment to the province, the constituency, and her town of Grand Bank. I have been unable to return to Grand Bank since my time there in 2003. I hold the memories of those experiences very, very warmly, and am always thankful to Judy for her guidance and assistance in helping get our project underway.
Her contribution to our country, your province, and your town is unmeasurable, and all of us are in a better place because of her efforts and commitment. I am blessed to have spent some time with her and to have spent time in Grand Bank.
I wish Judy and her family the very best as she enters this next phase of her life.
With continued warmth thoughts of Grand Bank, and hopefulness for a visit there in the near future,
