VALLEY - Colchester North Liberal MLA Karen Casey will re-offer in the riding for the next provincial election, expected sometime this year.
“Karen has been a tremendous representative for the people of Colchester North and a true asset at our caucus table,” said Liberal Leader Stephen McNeil in a news release. “Her experience and dedication as both an educator and a legislator have been invaluable to the Liberal Party over the last few years.”
Casey said McNeil’s leadership and vision for the province is what sets him apart from the other two party leaders.
“Stephen’s focus on investing in public education, ending corporate welfare and reining in electricity prices will make a real difference to Nova Scotians,” said the MLA also in a news release. “It’s the type of leadership this province needs and it’s why I’m proud to be running for the Liberals in Colchester North.”
Casey has been the MLA for Colchester North since 2006 and has served as the minister of both health and education.
A lifelong resident of Colchester North, Casey is currently the Liberal education critic and continues to be a strong advocate for a properly funded public education system in Nova Scotia.
