Matt Haley

Matt is passionate about Richmond County and is excited at the opportunity to serve and represent his community. He holds a Bachelor of Engineering from Dalhousie University and leads a successful career as Operations Coordinator with the Conseil Scolaire Acadien Provincial.

Matt and his wife Chantal Samson, both proud Acadians, live in Petit-De-Grat where they are raising their three children. As a family, they enjoy attending local events and attractions within Richmond County. Matt serves as director for both the Petit-De-Grat Beautification Society and the Arichat Community Development Association.

Building a Better Richmond

There are many infrastructure needs throughout Richmond County that remain unaddressed. Matt’s background in operations and his experience in working with the government make him ideally suited to work to securing essential infrastructure for the residents of Richmond, while creating work for local businesses.

Matt will work tirelessly for funding of parks and active transportation projects, for better and safer roads, for better high-speed internet and cellular coverage, as well as much-needed repairs and replacement to wharfs, breakwaters and shorelines.

A Welcoming Home

Richmond County is the best place to live! Community volunteer organizations and local businesses are at the heart of nearly all of Richmond’s initiatives and activities. These are the things that will help make Richmond so welcoming to future new physicians and nurses, so attractive for new entrepreneurs and so fun for our kids, young and old.

Matt believes that our volunteers and businesses deserve a partner and a leader that will be proactive in helping them seek funding and resources from all levels of government to make their ideas come to life, and to make our home that much better.
