With the municipal elections now just under three weeks away, The Record reached out to those running for the position of Mayor of Sherbrooke to get a sense of their plans for the city and the council should they be elected. Three of the four candidates responded and took the time to discuss their respective visions in brief. The fourth, Patrick Tetreault, never responded to the paper’s request for an interview.
For incumbent Steve Lussier, the 2021 municipal election is about seeking the chance to finish the work he has started over the last four years.
“I have done my first four years, and always planned to do two mandates,” the outgoing mayor said, arguing that the city has seen big, positive changes since his election in 2017, but that many projects still need time to be completed.
Lussier cited projects like the new Grandes-Fourches Bridge, the Espace Centro development on Wellington Street South, the yet-to-begin social housing project on Galt Street, and the nature preserve on Mont-Bellevue as among his accomplishments and contributions to the city to date.
