Coun. Beth Thompson is serving her sixth term as Councillor for the Town of Quispamsis.
She was first elected in 1997 as part of the Transitional Council who oversaw the amalgamation of the former Municipalities of Quispamsis, Gondola Point and a portion of the Rothesay Parish. Beth has represented the Town extensively on the Fundy Region Solid Waste Commission, and has served on a number of town committees.
Beth currently serves on the board of directors for the Union of Municipalities of New Brunswick, Emergency Measures Organization and Personnel Committee.
She happily co-authored the history of Quispamsis entitled “ Quispamsis: A Historical Sketch”, which was published in November of 2008. Beth really enjoyed the gathering and editing of information and hopes that all residents enjoy the historical journey as much as she did.
Beth also enjoys her time volunteering for the Heart and Stroke Foundation as well as the Kennebecasis Valley Food Basket.
Beth would like to see the Town of Quispamsis maintain its small town identity, at the same time continuing to develop under the new Municipal Plan. She continues and will continue to act on her belief of community, commitment and forward thinking.
Beth and her husband Gerald raised their two daughters in Quispamsis and are life long residents of the area.
