Nomination Date: 07/08/2019
Born in 1991, Martine Savoie is a dynamic young woman who is attentive to others. Martine is originally from the village of Le Goulet and she was raised by a single mother. Because of that, she understands the obstacles some families have to overcome.
While in school, Martine worked for her village during the summer breaks. She realized early on that the well-being of her hometown was an issue very near and dear to her heart. Since she wanted to be more involved with her community, she has been a municipal councillor for Le Goulet since May 2016.
In 2009, Martine graduated high school at École Marie-Esther (Shippagan, NB). In 2011, she completed two and a half years at Université de Moncton towards a Bachelor in Education. In 2013, she obtained two diplomas from the Jon Raymond Institute (Moncton, NB) as a hairstylist and makeup artist, and worked a few years in that industry. In 2016, she embarked on a new challenge, and became a deckhand/fisherwoman on a lobster fishing boat. Given her coastal village upbringing, it is not surprising this is a career she absolutely loves.
Martine understands the importance of the fishing industry, not only for her hometown of Le Goulet, but for the entire electoral district. The well-being of the seasonal workers is highly valued by Martine and she strives to be able to help them. In fact, her first job was working at a fish plant and, therefore, she understands the hardship that goes into this particular employment. After enjoying her years with the municipal council, Martine has decided to go further and become a federal candidate. She knows she can represent the population of her district very well.
