Caucus Bio: 

Jim Lester and his wife Michelle grew up and went to school in Mount Pearl. They had three children, Samantha, John, and Caleb who also go to school in Mount Pearl.

The family owns and operates Lester’s Farm Inc. Their farm is entirely of their own creation and consists of Lester’s Farm Chalet – Newfoundland and Labrador’s premier agritourism destination, an innovative Aquaponics Food Production System that consists of the most advanced design worldwide. They also operate an environmental services division that collects and composts commercial organic waste to be used in beneficial food production.

Every year, Jim and his family provide thousands of pounds of vegetables to local charities and social causes. The farm employs up to 70 people annually, many of which are students who are working their first job. Jim and Michelle are passionate agriculturalists who want to impart the importance of food production, environmental consciousness, and resource management to everyone they meet.

Jim was elected to represent the people of Mount Pearl North in the House of Assembly in a by-election on November 21, 2017. He was sworn in and took his seat in the House on December 7, 2017.

He was appointed to serve as the Official Opposition Critic for Lands and Wildlife (includes Forestry, Crown Lands and Agrifoods) and Newfoundland and Labrador Housing Corporation.

With Jim’s backgound, he will be the perfect advocate for small and medium sized business. Jim’s work ethic and tireless commitment to getting the job done will be an incredible asset to the House of Assembly and the people of the province.
