Viewed often as a kleptocrat, Gilles DuBois has in recent years come under scrutiny by biographers, and despite popular feeling has been found to have capably managed the affairs of Saint-Onge.


Gilles DuBois successfully managed his family's oil brokerage DuBois et Fils for 20 years before being asked to run for the Parliament and later Prefect. During his time running the oil firm, DuBois successfully increased profits leaving the company with an all time budget surplus and significantly improved assets. After his retirement, the firm was bought by Petrol Louisiannais, SA.

Prefectoral Administration

Gilles DuBois' inaugural portrait

DuBois won by a slim-margin, and throughout his time in office events were such that he appeared a very poor administrator, regardless of his otherwise apt skill.

Because of the kleptocratic behavior of MPs and other officials during DuBois' regime, most of his time was spent mitigating the recession that struck Saint-Onge and the other Prefectures to a lesser degree in the late 1990's and 2000's.

He was defeated widely in the race against Marie-Claire Gildersleeve.
