March 17, 2024 (Saint Croix) – Liberals gathered in the riding of Saint Croix Saturday morning to nominate Troy Lyons as their candidate for the next provincial election.

As the event began, Leader of the Liberal Party of New Brunswick Susan Holt said “It will take a strong team to transform our province. We are building that team, candidate by candidate, and together, we will bring the change that New Brunswick so desperately needs.”

Saint Croix is the eleventh riding where the Liberal Party is holding a nominating convention leading up to the next provincial election. Two candidates were vying to carry the Liberal banner: Troy Lyons and Jamie Hirtle. Troy Lyons was declared the winner once all the votes were counted. Troy Lyons grew up living in a coastal community and has lived and worked in Saint Croix for over 20 years. He has a Bachelor of Science in Agriculture, a Masters of Science and has spent time conducting studies at the St. Andrews Biological Station. Troy has over 30 years of experience in project management and has worked in the agriculture, fisheries, aquaculture and the environmental sectors. For the last 16 years he has worked in the provincial Department of Environment and Local Government.

When addressing the crowd, Lyons said, “I want to be your next MLA so I can be the voice of the people and speak loudly for you in Fredericton. We have major issues that need to be addressed, especially timely access to quality health care, available and affordable housing, and tackling the growing crisis with homelessness. A vote for me is a voice for you.”

In closing the event, Holt said, “I want to thank both candidates for coming forward, Jamie and Troy. We are stronger together and it is as a strong, united team that we will earn the trust of New Brunswickers. No matter where you live, no matter what language you speak and no matter who you love, every voice deserves to be heard.”
