Hello, and welcome to my blog site. I am a three term Councillor for the City of Fredericton, New Brunswick's capital city. There are twelve Wards in our city, and I am very proud to represent Ward 3, which is the Fulton Heights/North Devon area. It is on the northside of the city (which is split into north/south by the majestic Saint John River), and consists of a large portion of the former Village of Nashwaaksis along with a portion of the former Town of Devon.

The major institutional centers in Ward 3 are Park Street Elementary School and the Nashwaaksis Middle School. The Fredericton Indoor Aquatic Center and the Indoor Field House are "attached to" the Middle School. The beautiful Killarney Lake Park is on the northern extreme of Ward 3.

The major retail areas are Main Street, and the Smart Centre retail park on Two Nations Crossing with anchor tenants Wal-Mart, Kents and Canadian Tire.

I will post news from City Council, and of the City, its people and events. Stay tuned, and don't hestitate to contact me any time at mike.obrien@fredericton.ca.
