07 Feb Provincial By-Elections Called
Premier Stephen McNeil has called by-elections for the ridings of Truro-Bible Hill-Millbrook-Salmon River and Cape Breton Centre, with an election day of March 10th.
In the riding of Truro-Bible Hill-Millbrook-Salmon River, Allan Kennedy, a long-time educator and community leader is vying to represent the people of his riding. Allan was a teacher at Cobequid Educational Centre, followed by serving as Vice Principal at Truro Jr. High – and most recently, serving as Principal of Redcliff Middle School for over 20 years.
“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 am committed to being your voice at the government table.” said Kennedy.
In the riding of Cape Breton Centre – dedicated volunteer, community advocate, local business owner and former MLA, Dave Wilton, is seeking to serve his community again. Dave was a driving force behind the approval for a new, state-of-the-art collaborative community health care centre, a new long-term care home, as well as a new Breton Education Centre. He was also instrumental in raising $240,000 to bring a new world-class skateboard park to New Waterford.
“This is my home and I want to keep fighting for the causes that mean the most to you. If elected, I’m committed to once again being your voice at the table in the Nova Scotia Legislature.” said Wilton.
Premier Stephen McNeil says he’s looking forward to having two more strong voices in government.
“Both Allan and Dave bring with them the real experience required to deliver real results to the people of Truro-Bible Hill-Millbrook-Salmon River and Cape Breton Centre” said McNeil.
“They have shown tireless dedication to serving their communities, and I look forward to working with them in building a stronger Nova Scotia,” he added.
