April 12th, 2024 (Miramichi West) – Liberals gathered in the riding of Miramichi West Thursday evening to nominate Mark Hambrook as their candidate for the next provincial election.


As the event began, surrounded by local supporters, caucus members, and nominated candidates, Leader of the Liberal Party of New Brunswick Susan Holt said “We are feeling a sense of change coming, everybody agrees that we can do better and New Brunswickers deserve better. I am thrilled that Mark Hambrook has joined our ever-growing team that will bring that needed change to our province. His deep community roots and dedication to serving his region will make him a wonderful representative for the people in Miramichi West.”


Miramichi West is the fourteenth riding where the Liberal Party is holding a nominating convention leading up to the next provincial election.


Mark Hambrook was born in Renous, attended Blackville High School and UNB, and now lives with his wife Barbara in Cassalis. He worked for the Department of Fisheries and Oceans for 18 years, during which time, he received several recognition awards including the Deputy Minister’s Commendation Award for demonstrating excellence in leadership qualities, and the DFO Gulf Region Merit Award for improving community relations. Mark worked for the Miramichi Salmon Association for 25 years as Manager of the Miramichi Fish Hatchery and served several terms on their executive board as President.


Hambrook currently volunteers with several organizations such including the Atlantic Salmon Museum in Doaktown, the Miramichi Watershed Management Committee, the Miramichi Salmon Association and the Miramichi River Environmental Association.


When addressing the crowd, Hambrook said, “There are some big issues facing our province in affordability, health care and housing. A Liberal government will work hard to make NB a better place to live and work by tackling these issues and others, with solutions that are provided from listening to people. I look forward to becoming part of that team.”


“It will take a team to serve New Brunswickers, to give them a government who listens to them and provides empathetic leadership that will work with them. We need to stop making decisions in Fredericton and give the power back to the people and work with our local communities, not-for-profit organizations and community organizations to drive the future of New Brunswick,” said Holt.
