Tilly O'Neill-Gordon

I am a native of the Miramichi area (Escuminac), the daughter of Tom and Carmel (Jimmo) O’Neill. Our family moved to the former town of Chatham in 1961, where I attended St. Michael’s Academy, graduating in 1967.

Following graduation, I attended Teachers' College in Fredericton. I began teaching in 1970, and did so in my native village of Escuminac.

In 1972 I was transferred to Nelson-Miramichi followed by another transfer the next year to Chatham Head. There I remained for 15 years, teaching in the “little white school”. When this school closed officially in 1988, I was transferred to Ian Baillie Primary where I remained until retiring in 2003. I re-entered the teaching profession a year later at Burnt Church, just before I ran as a candidate in Miramichi.

I have four sisters, of whom three live in the area and the other in Bathurst. ??I have held many political positions in my community/province: president of Miramichi Bay PC Association, President of Miramichi Bay Du Vin PC Association, President of the Federal PC Association for Miramichi and Vice-president of NB PC Womens’ Association.

I was elected as the Member of Parliament for the riding of Miramichi on October 14, 2008. I was Re-elected on May 2, 2011.
