“Fundy Royal is the jewel of southern New Brunswick. We are rich in resources and our people know how to tackle challenges. As your representative, I don’t want to presume to know what you need; I want to hear it from you. Together we can define the commonalities amongst our diverse communities, from Quispamsis to St. Martins; from Sussex to Hillsborough to create a future that will ensure that our children can enjoy the lifestyle we have worked hard for as New Brunswickers and Canadians – here at home”.Alaina LockhartMember of Parliament for Fundy Royal
