09 Dec Liberal Candidate Chosen in Truro-Bible Hill-Millbrook-Salmon River
Allan Kennedy, a well known long-time educator, has been chosen as the successful candidate in the riding of Truro-Bible Hill-Millbrook-Salmon River and will represent the Nova Scotia Liberal Party in an eventual by-election.
At what was a closely contested nomination meeting, and among hundreds of provincial liberal members, Kennedy earned the majority of support.
Alison Graham Fulmore, a community volunteer, was also vying for the nomination – and she’s someone Kennedy says will play a key role in his provincial campaign. “Alison is a dedicated member of this community. I am truly honoured to have the support of someone of such caliber and integrity” said Kennedy.
Improving the health and well being of his community was a driving force behind his decision to seek the nomination and is one of many reasons he wants to represent the people of his riding.
“I intend to be a strong voice for education, social programs, employment opportunities and climate change” he said.
Kennedy, who served as a teacher, vice principal and principal, says being at the government table will also allow him to affect positive change for the residents of Truro-Bible Hill-Millbrook-Salmon River.
“As an educator, I’ve always believed in the value of hard work. I will make sure your concerns are my concerns and if elected, I will always represent the best interests of our communities” he added.
“We are incredibly excited to have Allan join our team,” said Premier Stephen McNeil.
“Allan has shown tremendous dedication to serving his community, and he shares in our passion of working together to build a stronger future for Nova Scotians” he added.
