Regional Municipality of Wood Buffalo mayoral candidate Don Scott is pleased to share the following endorsement he has received from well known Wood Buffalo resident and community advocate Annie Lelievre:
“When I lost my son in a tragic accident on Highway 63 in 2011, I knew his loss could not be in vain and I began a journey to ensure the twinning of that highway to lessen the chance of future losses like mine. This journey took me from grieving mother to passionate leader in the demand to twin Highway 63, primarily through a petition that garnered tens of thousands of signatures. Through my entire journey, one person provided advice, support and his commitment to assisting me in reaching my goal: Don Scott.
I have known Don for almost twenty years, and during that time I have come to know an individual who puts people before politics and who is dedicated to helping those around him. Whatever I needed, Don was there for me, and he provided critical guidance and support during some of the most difficult times in my life.
This year Don Scott will seek election as Mayor of the Regional Municipality of Wood Buffalo. I believe there could not be a better person to represent our region and communities, and nor could there be anyone as committed to working for and with the people of Wood Buffalo.
During one of the most traumatic incidents in my life, Don was there. When he understood that I believe there could not be a better person to represent our region and communities, and nor could there be anyone as committed to working for and with the people of Wood Buffalo.
During one of the most traumatic incidents in my life, Don was there. When he understood that I n Scott in his bid to become mayor of our region, as I know he will make decisions based on what is best for the people he serves. His care and concern for the people of this region are genuine and authentic, and he has been not only a friend but also a strong supporter and guide in my journey. His natural leadership and desire to help others ensures he will be a fantastic mayor and the leader this region needs.” – Annie Lelievre
Said Don Scott: “I am honoured to receive this endorsement as I seek the confidence of voters in the RMWB municipal election taking place on October 16, 2017. Ms. Lelievre has been a tremendous advocate in our community and I believe her persistence and determination undoubtedly contributed to the completion of the twinning of Highway 63 and has subsequently saved others from experiencing the tragedy she has endured. Her kind support during this campaign encourages me to continue to work for a stronger tomorrow in our region.”
