Open, transparent, inclusive, and empathetic leadership is the cornerstone of Susan’s vision for the Party.

Susan is passionate about people-focused policy that makes our lives better. She believes in empowered communities that are environmentally friendly, age-friendly, inclusive, and vibrant, where everyone has an affordable place to call home; where high-quality education and bold ideas drive a robust economy that allows every New Brunswicker to thrive.
Susan will promote unified and respectful politics in New Brunswick. This includes a pride in New Brunswick’s bilingualism and a deep commitment to true reconciliation with Indigenous peoples. She will work towards a New Brunswick that recognizes that diversity is our strength and that our democracy is stronger when everyone can participate fully.
