Fundy-The Isles-Saint John West is a provincial electoral district for the Legislative Assembly of New Brunswick, Canada.

History[edit]

It was created as Charlotte-The Isles in 2006 as a result of a merger of the old district of Charlotte with the district of Fundy Isles less Campobello Island which moved from Fundy Isles to the new Charlotte-Campobello district. The largest community within this riding is the town of St. George.

Rick Doucet, is the current member of the Legislative Assembly represented this riding. A Liberal, he was first elected in the 2003 election to represent the former district of Charlotte. He was re-elected to represent this new district in 2006 and joined the cabinet as Minister of Fisheries.

Under the recommendations of a 2012 Electoral Boundaries and Representation Commission, the boundaries of district where adjusted and accepted by the Provincial Government. While the district lost polls from its western boundary, it gained area in the east with the addition of polls in St. John County. The commission did not recommend a name change, but the electoral boundaries commission changed its name from Charlotte-The Isles to Fundy-The Isles-Saint John West.[3]

Currently, Jason Gaudet is the Liberal President of the riding, Sharon Tucker is the Progressive Conservative President of the riding and Teresa "Terry" James is the riding President for NDP New Brunswick. .
