Calumet Island Mayoral Race

Lina Lacroix Ricard is running for mayor of Calumet Island on the platform of bringing in new residents while also listening to the current ones. The Shawville Hospital nurse plans to host more community events and points to outdoor tourism as a potential revenue stream.

Lacroix looks to revitalize Calumet:
Out on the island, a new candidate has entered the race and she’s looking to bring a younger generation there with her.
A resident of the island for five years and a nurse at the Shawville Hospital, Lina Lacroix Ricard wants to revitalize Calumet Island and in turn, bring in new money.
“I’ve been on the island for five years and to me it seems like nothing has moved in [that time],” said Lacroix Ricard. “Running for mayor, for me, would be doing more stuff for the community to bring people, and the beauty of the island, back like it was many years ago.”
