Being left out.

That’s what Scott Reid, Liberal candidate for the Aug. 26 byelection in St. George’s-Stephenville East, said is the biggest concern that he’s hearing and for him the biggest issue in the district.

He said people are telling him they are being left out on road work, spending in health care and just a lack of opportunities in the area.

Reid said people are saying they need change and he is hoping this byelection will lead to a change now in his district and in the government as a whole in next year’s general election.

“I sense people are realistic about what they want and things, like roads, need to be fixed before small issues end up becoming big issues,” he said.

Reid said people should vote for him because he has a lot of experience in politics and an understanding of how government works in the province, including being a director of research for the Government Members Office in previous Liberal governments.

He said he has experience in policy development on both provincial and federal levels.

But most of all, Reid said he has a passion for the area where he was born and grew up, in Bay St. George South.

He said while his family is from Codroy Valley, he grew up with his Aunt Mildred and Uncle Ellis Parsons in Jeffreys.

“I’m ready for this and plan to be effective from my first day on the job,” he said.
