For those that know me, I am running for the position as Nova Scotia Representative for Green Party Council and I am hoping you will support me in this.
For those that don?t know me, I have lived most of my life in Abbotsford, British Columbia, where I?ve been very involved with the Green Party. I ran as a MLA Candidate in 2007 for the BC Greens and as an MP Candidate for the National Party. I have also been involved with the Electoral District Association in Abbotsford having been the Financial Agent or the CEO for multiple years.
Last year I moved with my wife to Halifax to pursue my Masters at Dalhousie University and my career in community planning. We love the east coast; the deep cultural roots that are so apparent and a care and respect for the environment that is both familiar and yet unique to my experience on the west coast.
If I am to make Nova Scotia my home I am going to make sure I am involved in its political life. This began by volunteering during the provincial election for the Nova Scotia Greens, joining community engagement sessions and attending Halifax Municipal Council meetings to be aware of local issues and connect myself with those that are trying to make a difference. Through this I was encouraged by some of the people I have met to run for the position of Provincial Representative and I feel that this would be another way I could contribute to building the Green Party and its political presence in Nova Scotia.
I may be a new comer to Nova Scotia, but I have come to love the place and its residents and hope to be a positive voice for the province on the Green Party Council.
