Major issues: Economic development in our county so that our local workforce and business can grow. With the new civic center, hospital and growing Dalhousie Agricultural Campus, I believe that Colchester County is poised to have great development over the next number of years. I would like to help make Colchester County an even more attractive place where families can work, play, live and grow in the future. We need action on the damage that flooding does in our county.
Why he believes he's a good candidate: I have the experience of dealing with a multi-million-dollar budget and the fiduciary responsibility that comes with that. I will make decisions which are in the best interests of our community moving forward. I will strongly represent the good citizens of District 11.
