Gilbert Forest is adding his name to the ballot for the upcoming election in the RM of De Salaberry, more specifically, the St. Malo Ward.  

He grew up on a beef, dairy and mixed grain farm in De Salaberry and is a father of three. His work experience revolves around public works which include water and sewer operations, mechanics, and backhoe operations, among other roles. He was also a volunteer at the Saint-Malo Fire Department for over five years. 

If elected, his main priorities are infrastructure, services for seniors and recreation.  

“I have seven grandchildren who are actively involved in sports and I see the need for this [recreation] in our community.” 

Having lived in the community for many years, he is excited to serve this way. 

“My goal is to bring the knowledge that I gained from my life and work experiences to a new council so we can work together as a team to make our municipality an ideal place to live, work and play.” 

The municipal and school board elections are on Wednesday, October 26. To read and learn more about the election, check out the Municipal Election 2022 page.
