MRC PONTIAC –  After taking some time to reflect, Pierre Fréchette has
officially announced he will be a candidate in the race to become the region’s first elected warden in the November 5 elections. “I will first complete the different administrative requirements before giving more details about the ideas I would like to promote and the priorities that should be put forward,” said the former mayor of Île-du-Grand-Calumet.
Fréchette is the third candidate to join the warden’s race, along with former Pontiac MNA Charlotte L’Écuyer and current warden Raymond Durocher. Although Fréchette will give more details in the coming weeks, he nevertheless stated he has all the arguments necessary to positively promote his candidacy. Referring to his resignation as mayor last spring, Fréchette said he has clarified the issues he was faced with and that integrity, ethics and transparency have always led his actions.
The news provoked some reactions from citizens via social media, with many saying they are happy about the announcement, including the Engage Pontiac page, created by Esprit Rafting owner Jim Coffey. Coffey said the announcement will make the debate more interesting. Others asked questions about Fréchette committing to the four-year term. Fréchette is expected to give more details on his candidature in September.
