Hello , my name is Darryl McKinnon.
I am taking this opportunity to announce that I will be seeking the PC nomination for the riding of Miramichi.
I moved here in 1980 from Yarmouth, NS when I was 13 yrs of age. Upon graduation I went to work for our local pulp and paper industry , Repap Miramichi (later called UPM), in 1988. After the permanent closure of that in 2007.
I have been married for 24 years to my beautiful wife Doris. We have two amazing kids, Sarah 19 and Cody 17.
I have seen Miramichi grow and I have bared witness to its shrinking with the collapse of our forestry industry. I know we can do better!
And I want to be a strong voice for the riding of Miramichi. I intend to be an honest and hard working MLA for the Miramichi riding voters.
Someone who WILL be there for any and all town hall meetings, regardless of the situation!
I will be there when needed. I will be there when called upon. I would be FOR the people of my riding first, and foremost.
I have proven myself to many in this community, and will continue to! I have been on a different boards, and offered opinions and listened to others. I have been past President of Newcastle Downtowns and a member of 1Voice. I know I can bring about the very best for Miramichi.
I appreciate your support.
