With the municipal elections looming in November, Luskville resident Joanne Labadie has joined the mayoral race in the Municipality of Pontiac (MoP), running against Mayor Roger Larose, who is rounding out his first term.
Though this is her first foray into municipal politics, Labadie has a wealth of experience as an elected official.
“I have not sat on municipal council but I have sat on a council of commissioners at the Western Quebec School Board,” she said. “I am the chair of the Western Quebec School Board transportation committee, which has a budget greater than that of our municipality. To put it in perspective, the transportation committee that I chair has an 8.2 million dollar budget while our municipality has a 7.9 million dollar budget so I certainly have the experience.”
