Bathurst's mayor disappointed party leaders have yet to visit Chaleur region

With the provincial election campaign in full swing, elected officials in the Chaleur region are disappointed none of the party leaders have visited this area of the province.

Bathurst mayor Paolo Fongemie says party leaders have an obligation to visit all areas of the province to speak with voters and to learn about the various issues faced by their respective region.

Fongemie says the situation is embarrassing and does not want to see the region taken for granted by provincially elected representatives.

Campaigning has been going on for a little over three weeks.

Voters cast their ballots on September 24th.
