Today, I had the fortune and opportunity to meet an individual trained and working as a social worker in the Montreal area who is now running for political office in his borough as a city councillor; Alain Vaillancourt with Project Montreal.
It was an hour and fifteen minutes well spent. This is an individual that is humble, but charismatic at the same time that gets it. What is ‘it’ you might ask? As an individual trained and working as a social worker, he understands the issues, he understands where his strengths, as well as his weaknesses are. He wants to make a difference and see change happen that will best affect the residents of Saint Paul- Emard. He has lived in the area for 18 years, made a home there with his family and supported local causes.
He is willing and able to use his social work skills. He connects, collaborates, listens, and shares with all residents whether they are 20 or 85. His work experience has for the most part been with seniors/older adults and he will continue to focus on this demographic, but he also has an interest in seeking improvements for families, encourage physical activities and sports in his borough as well….
