New candidate joins the Vrai changement pour Montréal team in Pierrefonds-Roxboro

Montreal, September 20, 2017 Naghmeh Shafiei will be a candidate under the Vrai changement pour Montréal banner for the position of Borough Councillor, in the Cap-Saint-Jacques district. This candidacy comes after Domenico Pavone's decision to withdraw from the campaign. Fearing that his involvement in municipal politics could harm his wife's career with the municipal administration, Mr. Pavone preferred not to get involved in the election as a candidate.

"Although we understand his decision, it is with regret that we learned Domenico Pavone’s withdrawal, on the other hand I am convinced that we found in Naghmeh Shafiei a person who will also know how to defend the interests of the residents of Cap-Saint-Jacques and of Pierrefonds-Roxboro as a whole, "said Justine McIntyre, candidate for Borough Mayor of Pierrefonds-Roxboro and leader of Vrai changement pour Montréal.

“I adopted Pierrefonds-Roxboro when I returned to Montréal, at the turn of the 2000s. Today, I would like to share my vision for the borough, which could be reflected by a desire to improve infrastructures but also to increase citizen involvement", added the candidate for Borough Councillor in the district Cap-Saint-Jacques, Naghmeh Shafiei.
