April 26, 2024News

April 24th, 2024 (Miramichi East) – Liberals gathered in the riding of Miramichi East this evening to nominate Veronique Arsenault 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 “New Brunswickers are fed up with one man in one office in Fredericton making all the decisions. 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.”


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


With an impressive background that showcases her fluency in both English and French and her rich Irish-Acadian heritage, Veronique Arsenault’s global travels and diverse experiences have only strengthened her resolve to serve her hometown. Veronique serves her community as an elected City Councilor, chairing the Corporate Services Standing Committee, championing a Mental Health Strategy for the community in partnership with the Anglophone North School District, and continuing to volunteer as a member of the Executive for Legion Branch #3.


Although Veronique is often known for being in front of the microphone, what is remarkable is that her time spent behind the scenes far outweighs her public contributions. In recognition, Veronique received the MYPIE Community Champion of the Year Award in 2009 from her peer professionals and area entrepreneurs for her outstanding advocacy for the Miramichi, as well as, Fisherman Pow Wow Award for outstanding contributions to the community in 2014, the Volunteer of the Year Award in 2016 from Volunteer Miramichi, Woman of Influence in 2016 from the Women’s Empowerment Network and finally the Queen Elizabeth II Platinum Jubilee Medal in Feb 2023 for Outstanding contribution and service to the community through volunteerism.


When addressing the crowd, Arsenault said, “It’s humbling to stand here as the newly nominated candidate for Miramichi East. I have had the opportunity to work with so many of you over the years in making a positive impact on the lives of our neighbours, friends and family. I thank you for the support you’ve shown me and the faith you’ve placed in me both as a City Councillor and now as a candidate. There is so much opportunity before us and I’ve always known that if I work long enough and hard enough good things will come. Let’s get to work!”


“I am thrilled to be adding Veronique to our team,” said Holt while closing the event. “She brings with her a wealth of experience, and is such a passionate and dedicated advocate for the people of Miramichi, which she will continue to be as the next MLA for Miramichi East.”
