L’ISLE-AUX-ALLUMETTES – William Amos, a 39 year-old Chelsea resident and small business owner seeking nomination for the Federal Liberal nomination in the Pontiac met with 30 community members to introduce himself and discuss relevant issues at the St. Joseph Hall for Families and Seniors, March 9. “Power is in the hands of the people and I, as a member of the Liberal Party, want to reach out to all generations. That is my            challenge,” stressed Amos.
Residents voiced their concerns about the     problems in the medical system, lack of jobs in the area, etc. Amos’ main   message was that the    government must represent the entire Pontiac, from Anglophones and Francophones, to First Nations members. “There is no magic formula to  success, just hard work,” he noted.
Amos’ campaign focuses on sustainable economic development in the rural regions, prosperous and healthy families, environmental protection, climate change and a green sustainable economy. “My love for the Pontiac residents, its local businesses and the great outdoors is my connection to the Pontiac,” explained Amos.
With 18 years of experience in parliamentary  politics, Amos is an expert in environmental law and has worked on the national unity file in former Prime Minister, Jean Chretien’s, office. He has also advised Federal Environment Minister, David Anderson, on biodiversity and water resource issues.
