Mr. Doyle is a former MLA for the Albert Riding (1995-1999) and served as Minister of State for Youth and Literacy. He has previously served on numerous boards and committees, including the Board and Executive Committee of the New Brunswick Teachers’ Association and the Board of the National Capital Commission in Ottawa. Mr. Doyle served as a member of the Board, Executive Committee and as Treasurer for both the former Southeast Regional Hospital Authority and the Horizon Health Network. As Treasurer, he presided over four years of balanced budgets.
Over the years Mr. Doyle has been active at the community level as a coach in hockey, baseball and basketball. He has worked as a communications and public relations consultant. He is proud to have collaborated on the study of the Petitcodiac River system and in the preparation of the report that led to the removal of the causeway and opening the river.
Doyle says, “The Fundy Albert district needs strong and experienced voices for each ward as we move into this new arena of municipal service districts to make sure all the residents are represented.” He adds, ”My pledge if elected is to listen to my constituents and to use my experience and understanding gained over the years in various elected positions to continue to serve them.”
Mr. Doyle currently serves as a member of the Board of the South East Regional Learning Association, Councillor and Chair of the Anglophone East District Education Council and member of the New Brunswick Health Council. He was previously elected to the advisory committee to help establish the new municipal service districts with the province. Mr. Doyle currently resides in Lower Coverdale with his wife Sandra.
Heather Ward Russell is putting her name forward to offer for the position of Councillor for Ward 6, which spans from Riverview town limits up to and including White Birch Estates. Heather is excited about this opportunity to represent her area as she was born and raised in Lower Coverdale and continues to raise her family here.
For over 10 years Heather was elected as the Chair of the Local Service District (Coverdale) and was selected and appointed as a member of the Regional Service Commission where she chaired the Public Safety and Audit committees. During this time, Heather and the committee met regularly with the RCMP for quarterly updates and raised issues and concerns related to specific areas. They also developed the 72 – hour preparation storm guide to help new citizens moving to the greater Moncton areas to prepare for storm-related issues.
Heather believes in small community values and in making sure residents’ voices are heard around the local table as well as the regional one. Heather understands and respects the benefits of rural NB as her passion and career are based in the agricultural field. Heather works as an Executive Director for Atlantic Grains Council and oversees the inspection process through knowledge and training of grain quality as the Chief Grain Inspector for the Department of Agriculture, Aquaculture and Fisheries.
Heather is more than capable of representing Ward 6 in the upcoming election and hopes to have your support in doing so. Heather can be reached at 506-380-9663 or email email@example.com
