Walking back a suggestion made in 2017 that she would not seek a fourth term as mayor of Sainte-Barbe, Louise Lebrun has announced she will indeed be running in the municipal elections this fall.
The COVID-19 pandemic has stalled the implementation of several projects already on the table, which Lebrun now says she wants to see through to completion. Such projects include the creation of a sub-regional eco-centre, commercial development, a water park installation, a seniors’ co-op, and the expansion of the Centre Barberivain.
Lebrun says that after 12 years as mayor, she no longer needs to convince members of the Sainte-Barbe community of her determination to carry out development projects. She is running on a promise of continuity when it comes to ongoing projects, of stability by maintaining a solid vision for the municipality, and of determination and dedication to the well-being of the municipality and its citizens.
