I was brand new to provincial politics when I first met Tim Houston at the President’s Meeting in November 2015. I learned that Tim was our “buddy MLA” for Dartmouth East. Over the past two years I have met Tim on numerous occasions and I have been impressed by his thoughtful response to questions and how he takes the time to listen. Tim Houston has practical and innovative ideas to solve the problems, we as Nova Scotians face every day. With the issues we have in healthcare, education and the economy.
One of the first questions I asked Tim was how do we keep our university graduates from leaving Nova Scotia after they graduate. Tim, as a father of two had obviously thought about this problem at some length. His ideas were practical. I want to my own two children to feel confident that they can stay in Nova Scotia after graduation. That there are opportunities for them in Nova Scotia and that they can make a positive contribution for the future.
I strongly support Tim Houston as the next leader of the Nova Scotia Progressive Conservative Party and the next Premier of our province. Tim has the business and legislative experience and skills necessary to lead the Nova Scotia Progressive Conservative Party. I believe that Tim Houston is the only candidate that can defeat Stephen McNeil and the Liberal Party in the next provincial election.
