Former councilman Bruno Vachon continues to think about whether he will jump into the arena in the next provincial election. If his name runs for an application under the banner of Coalition avenir Québec in Sherbrooke, Mr. Vachon maintains that he is reappropriating his duties in his business, Decoration King.
“I do not have a decision to announce. I’m looking at opportunities to see what will fit best. I do not do it on purpose to stretch the pleasure. I returned to the store in December and I’m preparing for the next season. I need to reclaim all that, “he says.
The leap in provincial politics of her opponent of the last municipal elections, Annie Godbout, does not weigh in the balance. Mr. Vachon did not consider a return to municipal politics in the event of a victory for Ms. Godbout. “It’s not part of my thinking. It does not change anything. ”
In the riding of Sherbrooke, Luc Fortin will defend the liberal colors, Guillaume Rousseau will represent the Parti Quebecois and Christine Labrie will try to win a seat for Quebec Solidaire.
Philippe Pagé will remain mayor of Saint-Camille
The current mayor of Saint-Camille, Philippe Pagé, decided to stay in his municipality instead of immediately making the jump to the provincial.
The name of Réjean Hébert’s former political attaché had emerged at the dawn of the provincial election campaign after Richmond Liberal MP Karine Vallières recently announced his withdrawal from politics. Reflection made, despite the field experience and approaches of the PQ, he preferred to postpone this project.
“I’m definitely interested in provincial politics. There is also a lot to change about the agricultural world, but it is only part of the delivery. I want to remain Mayor of Saint-Camille and participate in the development and evolution of my community, “says Philippe Pagé.
The announcement of the decision of Ms. Vallières not to stand for the next election surprised the former political attaché and aroused his thoughts. “It made me think about my desire to start or not in the race. Finally, I chose to remain at the municipal and continue to represent the citizens of Saint-Camille who elected me a few months ago, “says Philippe Pagé.
Annie Godbout for the PLQ, André Bachand for the CAQ and Colombe Landry for QS have already announced their desire to replace Karine Vallières in Richmond County. – Julie Lupien
