The TJ is reporting this morning that long-serving Fredericton Liberal MP Andy Scott will not re-offer in the next federal election.
Scott informed his riding association and political supporters at a gathering Monday night that he will finish his term and then leave politics.”I have a new young family,” he said in an interview Monday evening.”I am 51 and this gives me an opportunity to pursue one more career. I am still young enough to do that.”Scott was first elected in the federal riding of Fredericton in 1993 and he was re-elected five times.He said he made the decision not to re-offer on the weekend.
Hmmm. Lord decides to keep his residency in Freddy. Harper expected to call an election….
