Since my last election campaign, my credo has always been ‘Representation in Québec City, action in Verdun!’ Verdun is a riding with a dynamic population that deserves to have representation that measures up to its ambitions. I will proudly continue to work in collaboration with community organizations and all levels of government not only to promote student retention, but also to meet the other needs of Verdun residents.

A word from the MNA for Verdun
Over the past years, I have held the role of Chief of Staff to the Minister of Culture and Communications and Minister responsible for Higher Education. From 2008 to 2014, I was Director General of Communications and Institutional Relations for SODEC.
I believe strongly in the importance of political engagement for the advancement of Quebec society, which is why I have been a member of the Quebec Liberal Party since 2001.
The fight against poverty and social marginalization is very important to me, so I am involved with foundations and organizations such as the Fondation Néz pour vivre and United Way. I hope to share this energy and these beliefs with all residents of Verdun, from the youngest to the oldest.
