Team Lagassé has a new home. As a result of the boundary changes that took place last year, St. Adolphe-where our former constituency office was-is no longer a part of the Dawson Trail riding. We’re now breaking in our brand-new office in Ste. Anne. Beginning the New Year in a new office feels appropriate. Both the new year and our new office bring a renewed sense of perspective as I continue working hard for my constituents. To celebrate the opening of our new office space we held an open house at the end of January. Thank you for the warm welcome to the community – trademark friendly Manitoba.
In March I’ll return to the Legislative Building. After spending a fulfilling winter season immersed in community activities, I’m keen to bring your voices to the legislative table. Legislative sessions are always productive, and this upcoming agenda will be no different. This session will be a valuable opportunity to do what voters elected my colleagues and me to do – keep moving Manitoba forward.
Until session, I’ll continue spending a lot of time out in the Dawson Trail community. Community events like my Coffee With Bob events help me stay connected to residents – and the issues on their minds. I recently hosted a Coffee With Bob at the Chicken Chef in Lorette. I was accompanied by a guest: Mayor Justin Bohémier. Listening to the concerns shared by residents of Dawson Trail helps guide me as I head back to session. Mayor Bohémier brought excellent insight to our discussions, and I look forward to continue working collaboratively with him. I’m always happy to have conversations about the issues in our riding and I’m looking forward to the next Coffee With Bob.
I love to read – so, I’ve also spent some time visiting schools for I Love To Read Month. During February, I visit schools throughout Dawson Trail to read to the students. Spending time with the kids and instilling the value of reading is a highlight for me. We have a few new schools in our riding this year due to the boundary changes. I’m looking forward to visiting schools such as Hazelridge and Richland for the first time, and getting to meet a whole new group of young Manitobans.
