Liberal Candidate for Chester-St.Margaret's
After fulfilling 15 years with the Canadian Armed Forces serving in the Royal Canadian Navy, having represented us internationally, Jacob is eager to continue his path of service to become the MLA for Chester-St. Margaret’s. Born and raised in beautiful Hubbards, attending the local schools in the riding, Jacob now lives in Tantallon with his wife, daughter, rescue dogs, and in-laws in their multi-generational home.
When asked why he is running: “Now more than ever our province needs to ensure that our Representation has the leadership skills to navigate the complicated waters of the present and future”. Jacob’s inspiration comes from his young daughter and the world she will grow up in; his parents and in-laws who should age with dignity, neighbours, the community, and the province; and there is far too much at stake to not act. Jacob’s personal hero was his grandfather who served in WW2, owned a small business, and raised a wonderful family.
What we do now will affect generations to come; however, the challenges we face are also some of our greatest opportunities. Jacob is eager to use his leadership experience and his passion for his community to represent the constituents of Chester-St. Margaret’s at the provincial table.
Nova Scotia is ready to take the next step. We have an opportunity, right now, and an obligation to leave a better legacy for our children – by increasing equity, protecting the environment and building a better tomorrow.Learn More
Coming out of the pandemic ensuring our economy continues to grow will be key. Let’s shop local, enable our tourism stakeholders, while innovating and growing our exports. All while creating a balance that ensures the environment and the value of our resource industries remains sustainable. This is not an easy task and will require thoughtful, collaborative and solution-based dialogue, something Jacob is prepared to bring to the table.
1 in 5 Nova Scotians is over the age of 65. We need to invest immediately in caring for our Seniors with infrastructure for continuing care, support for our home care programs, and education and incentivize a healthy workforce to take care of those who have taken care of us.
Chester-St. Margaret’s is one of the most beautiful places in the world with enormous potential. The stakes are too high and the issues are too important: the pandemic, the environment, the economy, our seniors, systemic racism, affordable housing and accessible transportation. These interconnected issues need and deserve proven effective leadership.
