St. Thomas alumnus Greg Davis graduated in 1987 and was the president of the Student Representative Council. In 2008, he was the mayor of Campbellton, N.B.. After that, he went on to be the Progressive Conservative MLA of Campbellton-Restigouche Centre. Last week, Davis announced he was not going to run for re-election as MLA because of health reasons. This came after CBC reported that Davis owes over $6,000 on rent of his constituency office.
In 2012, his party bailed him out after he came up more than $5,000 short on his constituency office rent, although he received the maximum allotment of $40,000 for constituency expenses. Details of how he spent the money will be reviewed next week by the Legislative Administration Committee.
Davis has been unavailable for comment. Premier David Alward has said Davis’s health problems are a private matter. When reporters visited his home last week, there was no sign of Davis, but there was a note on the window, with his constituency office number written on it, with St. Thomas University letterhead.
