Experience Counts

As your PC Candidate, with over four years as a Member of the Nova Scotia Legislative Assembly (MLA) and 16 years as a Councillor with the Halifax Regional Municipality, I have the experience and knowledge of how government works at all levels.


I understand the issues both Provincially and in our communities of Sackville - Mount Uniacke and have the inter-governmental connections and background to ensure that the concerns and issues of the residents in Sackville - Uniacke are heard and resolved.


Most importantly, I have the proven track record of working hard for the residents I represent.
