Mrs. Genevieve Lachance, district 1 councillor

Mrs. Pamela Tremblay, district 2 councillor
A Saint-Lambert native living in Saint-Lazare with her family since 2010, Pamela Tremblay quickly joins in the community life of her adopted city. Long before her election in November 2013, she is well known by many residents, as much for her attendance and participation at municipal assemblies as for her efforts to save the Dunes Woods Forest.
A registered nurse since 1992, Mrs. Tremblay is currently redirecting her career. Her constant will to be of service to others drives her to pursue her studies in Political Science at Concordia University.
As a city councillor, she choses to get involved in two municipal committees that are of significant importance to her: the CCU in order to help preserve Saint-Lazare’s country charm and the CCSM in order to promote public safety. Always attentive to the needs of her constituents, Mrs. Tremblay remains determined to make sound decisions that are in the best interest of the community and with a constant consideration for the future.

Mr. Martin Couture, district 3 councillor
Since settling in Saint-Lazare in 2002, Martin Couture has started his family and his business here. Married, and a father of two girls, Mr. Couture has truly adopted Saint-Lazare as his own.
From the moment he arrived in this rural town, Martin has been tirelessly involved at several levels. He has been the President of the Saint-Lazare Tennis Club, Treasurer of CPE Les Amis du Carré de Sable and CPE Château de Sable as well as President of the Saint-Lazare Business Association.
Over the next few years, Mr. Couture wishes to represent those who have elected him and act as a spokesperson for the town's young families. Development of the bike path network, public safety and the management of public finances are among the priorities included as part of Mr. Couture's mandate.
Having experienced many important moments of his life here in Saint-Lazare, the new councillor for District 3 is focused on giving other people the opportunity to enjoy equally memorable experiences of their own.

Mr. Michel Poitras, district 4 councilor
A resident since 1989, Saint-Lazare is where Michel chose to start his family. From the very start, he was involved in the community as a Little League baseball coach, helping the team win the first provincial championships in 2002. Michel also took on the role as president of the softball league for 2 years.
Michel was also involved in a wide range of other activities including the Cyclotour, Au Galop Festival, the Stallions and the Relay for Life, to name a few.
Since 2012, he has been a member of the Business Association, acting as Vice-President as well as president of the AGASL golf tournament, which raises money that is reinvested in the community through sporting associations, the palliative care residence and the Au Galop Festival.
In 2016, he created a citizens’ committee in association with the Town in an effort to obtain a subsidy from the provincial government and the Town to provide assistance to residents with homes that have sinking homes.
The Town of Saint-Lazare has great potential, and my role as councillor is to be as transparent as possible and make the best possible decisions for the future of Saint-Lazare.
