Satisfaction with Municipal Government Improves among HRM and Fredericton Residents

Halifax: HRM and Fredericton residents are highly satisfied with their municipal government and satisfaction has increased in the last three months, according to the most recent survey conducted by Corporate Research Associates Inc. (CRA). Specifically, eight in ten Fredericton (79%, up from 73% three months ago) and Halifax Regional Municipality residents (78%, up from 70%) are completely or mostly satisfied with the performance of their municipal government and mayor. Meanwhile, two-thirds of Moncton residents (66%, compared with 69%) are satisfied, and a similar number of Saint John residents (65%, compared with 67%) are satisfied in this regard.

“Generally speaking, satisfaction with municipal governments remains highly favourable in each of the four maritime cities tracked by CRA,” said Don Mills, Chairman and CEO of Corporate Research Associates. “Satisfaction with the performance of the council led by Mike Savage was up the most in the most recent assessment.”

These results are part of the CRA Urban Report, an independent telephone survey of Halifax Regional Municipality, Saint John, Moncton and Fredericton residents. The results are based on an adult sample of 411 Halifax Regional Municipality, 211 Saint John, 184 Moncton, and 280 Fredericton residents, conducted from January 30 to February 16, 2014.
