By Emilie Hackett, Special to the Record – Coalition Avenir Québec’s Geneviève Hébert dove into provincial politics for the first time last fall and was elected the MNA for Saint-François on October 1. Four months later, the Deputy Government Whip is growing more and more comfortable in her new position at the National Assembly. “So far, my mandate has been going very well. It’s a big learning curve,” explained Hébert from her new office on King Est Street in Sherbrooke. “I was sworn in on October 16, and from then it’s been a lot of preparation. We had to move, and we opened our offices in Sherbrooke and Coaticook. Then we had our first intensive two-week session in Quebec City. We are preparing for the budget, looking into all our dossiers, and I’ve met with many citizens who did not receive a follow-up on their dossiers.” Hébert and many of her fellow CAQ MNAs were faced with former deputies destroying the riding’s files and records and the end of their mandates, which has made settling in more complicated. “The adjustment period isn’t over yet but we’re starting to see the light at the end of the tunnel. We’re excited to get things done.” See full story in the Wednesday, Feb. 13 edition of The Record.
