Don Reid has announced he is seeking the Liberal Nomination for District 21 Summerside-Wilmont.
Reid is president of Reid Holdings and has been a business owner/operator for more than 25 years. He was previously a youth worker at the PEI Youth Centre, a Peace Officer and a Sheriff with the province but has since retired.
“The actions and direction of our current government are arrogant and condescending to Islanders,” said Reid. “To have a budget surplus but let our healthcare system crumble, and housing fall into crisis is irresponsible and unacceptable. I am going to work with the Liberal Party to fix the King government’s mess and make the lives of residents better.”
Nominated twice for the Order of Prince Edward Island, Reid’s community involvement is extensive. He is a member of the Summerside Lions Club and the Disability Action Committee and is the fundraising chair for the Harbourfront Theatre Board of Directors. He is a former president and director of the Summerside Chamber of Commerce, and former chair of the Atlantic Provinces Chambers of Commerce and the PEI Chambers of Commerce.
