Hayes official campaign launch for Mayor on Friday evening in Fredericton

Matthew Hayes, Mayoral Candidate for Fredericton, will officially launch his campaign with an event at the Cedar Tree Café on Friday, March 30. Accompanied by special guests, The Alex Bailey Band, Matthew will outline the main themes of his campaign and introduce his Great Ideas for a Great City platform. The Hayes campaign draws upon the experience, research, energy and diversity of local people engaged in community-oriented work. Mr. Hayes offers responsible and informed leadership for the City of Fredericton.

Matthew is a passionate Frederictonian with a responsible and positive vision for our city. He has a track record of leadership in the public sector and works with grassroots community groups. In the 1990s he worked in Parliament and currently teaches about economics, politics, and how globalization affects local communities. Like many New Brunswickers who have returned to the province, Hayes wants to be part of a community where we want to raise children, where people know and trust their neighbours, and where
healthy lifestyles are part of the very fabric of the city. His Fredericton roots run deep.

Business as usual in Fredericton means municipal leadership has closed down civic engagement. Mayoral candidate, Matthew Hayes will outline his plans for openness and transparency in city government, livable community strategies, solutions to transportation problems, informed environmental policies, and his measures to promote a strong local economy. At this launch you’ll be able to speak with candidate Hayes as well as our experts and local community people who have come together to support Great Ideas for a Great City.

WHEN: Friday, March 30th, 2012, 7 pm. (Remarks by Matthew at 7:45)

WHERE: Cedar Tree Café, 418 Queen Street, Fredericton
