Denis Chabot campaigns NEWS ST-PASCAL-BAYLON | Ward Six is now a three-way race in the October civic elec- tion. Denis Chabot has put his name on the ballot for local voters to consider. “I’m happy to be part of this election cam- paign,” Chabot said, “first, because it is a chance to give back to the community. I’m also very proud to be able to put my name in to help guarantee that we have fair and proper representation at the council table.” Chabot is a federal civil servant and had to wait for an official approval and release from his superiors before he could file his candidate nomination papers. Now he is working on his campaign platform as he prepares to contest current candidates Luc Thivièrge and Krysta Simard for the seat of incumbent Coun. Guy Desjardins who is passing up his chance at re-election for a run at the mayor’s chair of Clarence- Rockland this October. Chabot opens his campaign with criticism about how Ward 6 has suffered neglect from the current council over the past four years. “We have been horribly passed over du- ring the last few years,” he said. Chabot cited as one example the clo- sure of part of Baseline Road. He joined with many homeowners along the road in lobbying council and city hall for repairs to reopen the road. He is also concerned about traffic safety for school children in the ward, including guaranteeing the pre- sence of crosswalk guards for the local ele- mentary school. “I joined a city committee to research and propose alternative ways to protect our children,” he said. “As of yet, none of the ideas the committee presented have been put into place.” Often during the past few years Chabot has attended council sessions to lobby on public transit issues. He criticized council for approving fare rate increases that will in the end, he thinks, discourage ridership. “Like many things, this (public transit) was a good idea for the city,” he said, “but it has not been managed well.” Chabot wants to be on council when the contract between the city and Leduc Bus- line comes up for review in 2016. Beyond that, he is holding back on making any other specific election promises until he has had a chance to do more study about the main issues. “My own (issues) are not the important ones,” he said. “In a democracy, the issues that the voters raise are the important ones.” www. editionap .ca Everything at your fingertips Tout au bout des doigts
