Hi! My name is Richard Lee and I am asking for your support for Council in Ward 1 (West Saint John).
Let me tell you about about myself.
I was born and raised in West Saint John and currently live on Mahogany Island Crescent. I have lived West most of my life and see a lot of opportunity for the West Side to really help Saint John be the place that people come to live, work and play. I am happy to live in Saint John. We have a lot of things to be proud of and I think that is the message we need to have as our headline news!
I spent the past 10 years with Bobby’s Hospice, starting as Maintenance Coordinator and later proudly taking on the role of Facility Manager and Manager of Community Relations. Many of you may recognize my face from our weekly fundraising BBQs. Over my career I have also worked in sales, energy and manufacturing industries. I have Union experience at the executive level, which means I understand the collective bargaining and negotiation process.
I have enjoyed volunteering for community events and organizations. Now that I am retired and have more time to dedicate to my community I have decided to take it to the next level and offer for Council. I know what working together can achieve. I have seen it many times with activities i have been involved in. Let’s bring that cooperation to the Council Table and the Region. #Let’sGetItDOneInWard!
Some of my Community Involvement has been:
* Saint John Taxi Commission – Commission Member,
* Saint John SeaDogs – Player Billet,
Season Ticket Holder BBQ,
Weekly Study Hall Facilitator
* Hike for Hospice
* Bobby’s Hospice Friday BBQs
* Hospice Valentine’s Gala

* other supporting activities for car shows and various other fundraising events
