Councillor Alfred Poirier Announces Retirement

PORT HOOD, N.S. – Councillor Alfred Poirier announced his upcoming retirement from Municipal Council, which will take effect on December 31, 2021. The announcement took place at the Regular Municipality of the County of Inverness Council Meeting held yesterday in Port Hood.

“I am proud of the work I have accomplished in the past 9 years,” said Poirier. “I fought for projects like the new library opening soon in Chéticamp, improved emergency services in Pleasant Bay and Meat Cove, and the expansion of the Foyer Père Fiset, among many others.”

Councillor Poirier was first elected in 2012 as the representative for District 1 which covers the areas of Chéticamp, Pleasant Bay and Meat Cove. Mr. Poirier also served as the Deputy Warden from 2016 to 2020.

“After much discussion with my family, I believe it’s time for me to retire,” he said.

“Councillor Poirier has worked tirelessly in service of his community for 9 years, not to mention his dedication to his volunteer work and his family,” said Warden Laurie Cranton. “Municipal Council and staff wish him all the best in his retirement.”

A special election will be called for District 1, with additional details to follow.
