My name is Janice Morley Lecomte. Thank you for taking the time to visit my website and supporting my pursuit of the PC Nomination for Seine River. Allow me to tell you a little about my self. I am a mother, wife, business owner, advocate, counselor, and board member and past committee member. I bring 24 years of progressive experience serving the community through various not for profit/social service areas. I along with my husband Henry have owned a successful welding business for the past 24 years. Through my work, I have had the opportunity to connect with individuals from all social, economic and ethnic backgrounds and to network with many resources within the community, while offering a supportive atmosphere. Ongoing crisis, ever changing needs and limited resources have set the framework for establishing strong ties to community and understanding individual needs.
Throughout my business and work experience I have developed superior listening skills to attend to the needs of each person I meet. The power of being present offers encouragement, support and acknowledgement to empower individuals and assists with the need to focus on family.
I hold a Bachelor of Arts Degree from The University of Manitoba; Applied Counselling Certificate Program and Child Welfare Practice Program from The University of Manitoba; Specialization in Addictions from the Addictions Foundation of Manitoba; Protection Order Designate from Department of Justice, Manitoba; and have taken Psychology courses from University of Manitoba.
My volunteer experience over the last 24 years include volunteering on my children’s school board and been a staff representative for my work board. I have also volunteered for Child and Family Services as an outreach worker, a member of the Regional Committee and Area Council; been acting President, Vice-President and Treasurer for my children’s school Parents Association.
Working with community and being a business owner, has reinforced a set of core values which were instilled in my youth when I was growing up on the family ranch. Hard work, focusing on the future goal, being respectful of others and building a base for MY families’ future are ever present and key for continued success. I bring to the Seine River area years of commitment to the betterment of our community, business knowledge, a dedication to make Seine River the best place to live, and a focus on a future for families where the youth are able to work and live. Pride in ownership, a job well done and being part of a great community are only a few reasons my family and I have called the Seine River Area in Winnipeg, Manitoba home for the past 28 years.
I would like to take a moment to thank everyone who has supported me through purchasing a membership and helping with my campaign. Your involvement made all the difference and I would not be your representative without all your help.
I look forward to representing the Conservative Party and everyone within the Seine River area.
