Progressive Conservative Member of the Legislature Sherry Wilson was re-elected to the 58th Legislative Assembly of New Brunswick September 22, 2014, to represent the riding of Moncton Southwest. In 2014, Wilson served in Opposition as critic for Local Government & Rural Affairs. During this term in government, Sherry has been involved with Finance (including Department of Transportation & Infrastructure, Opportunities NB, Ambulance NB and Economic Development), Health, Economic & Social Inclusion Corporation (ESIC) and Women’s Issues.

Sherry was first elected September 27, 2010, to the 57th Legislative Assembly of New Brunswick to represent the constituency of Petitcodiac.  She defeated former cabinet minister and floor crosser Wally Stiles to take back the seat for her party.  Ms. Wilson was chair of the Standing Committee on Procedure, she was vice-chair of the Standing Committee on Legislative Officers and she served as a member of the Standing Committee on Crown Corporations. On November 5, 2010 she was named Legislative Secretary to the Minister of Health.

Ms. Wilson grew up on a dairy farm in Intervale and is one of nine children. Sherry attended school in Petitcodiac and following high school she completed a Business and Secretarial course at Campbellton Community College.

Her career began at Hub Meat Packers, in Moncton, where she was the Credit Manager’s Assistant. After moving to Edmonton, Alberta, she worked at the University Hospital in Administration. She returned home to family living out west after two years and bought her own business in Riverview. Sherry was a successful entrepreneur and business owner for 26 years.

Always believing in commitment to community, Ms. Wilson volunteered for the RCMP from 1991 until 1999 as Victim Services Intervention Worker and Coordinator. This work put her in touch with many people and brought her face to face with the difficult challenges which many families are forced to deal with on a regular basis.

In 2002 and 2003, she was the president of the Downtown Riverview Business Association. Ms. Wilson mentored fellow business owners and promoted the Town of Riverview.

In 2004 she was elected to Riverview Town Council; she served as Deputy Mayor in 2005 and was re-elected in 2008. She served as Liaison Councillor for finance, special projects, environmental strategies, and tri-council for the three municipalities. Ms. Wilson also sat on the Codiac Regional Policing Authority Board, the Immigration Board, Finn Report committee, D.A.R.E. and several others.

On the issues

The people of Moncton Southwest have expressed many concerns with our current Liberal government. At the top of the list is the mounting, unsustainable debt, high taxation and the decline in health care resulting in long wait times in the ER as well as the lengthy wait times to see specialists. Nurses and paramedics are totally exhausted with lack of staff to do the work required. Other key issues that are being discussed are our broken education system, which has seriously failed our students, business owners who are struggling over high taxes and increased costs to do business as well as the lack of much needed work on our roads. Seniors want to stay in their own homes as long as possible with access to health care support services if needed. They are deeply concerned that the Liberal government may reintroduce their previous attempt at asset grabs. Nursing homes are also desperately under staffed due to the lack of qualified talent to hire.  I believe that we all have to work together at fixing all of these neglected issues. That is what our constituents want and it has to be done strategically. By talking to our electorate and meeting with the key stakeholders in various fields, we must find real solutions that are sustainable over the long term. Setting measurable targets and goals will certainly help provide the accountability that the current government is desperately missing.
