DENIS Y. BOULET
Denis is from Connors in Haut-Madawaska. He is currently living with his family - his two parents Jeanine and Yves Boulet - owners of a tree farm where he works.
He graduated with a Bachelor of Arts with a major in History and a minor in Economics from St. Thomas University in Fredericton. As a student, he took part in the movement against shale gas in 2013.
In his community, Denis has taken part of various committees related to local history and museums since 2006. He was also part of an advisory committee for the local service district of Saint-François in 2012, and was an early voice in favour of creating the new rural community of Upper Madawaska.
Denis has occupied different jobs: seasonal worker at the family farm, customer service representative, as well as caretaker for special needs adults and people with reduced mobility. In everything he has done, Denis has found happiness in service to others, his neighbours. Like many young people in Upper Madawaska, Denis has also worked in the poultry industry as a pressure washer operator in different poultry farms in the region.
Denis has volunteered in his community since he was a teenager. He has always wished to work concretely for the benefit of the population, the preservation and restoration of the environment, the forest, lakes and watersheds of the region of Madawaska.
“I want the people to know that I intend to work for them, and for the land that we are borrowing from future generations. Every citizen of Madawaska Les Lacs-Edmundston will be my employer, and I want to represent them in the Legislative Assembly to defend their interests, their health and their well-being, all of this in total transparency.”
