HALIFAX, NS – Ryan Brennan will be the Progressive Conservative candidate in Halifax Atlantic in the upcoming provincial election. 
 
Brennan, a Halifax lawyer and father of two, was nominated tonight at an event with PC Party leader Jamie Baillie.
 
Brennan says the residents of Halifax Atlantic will be better off under a Progressive Conservative government. 
 
“Only a Progressive Conservative government will make life more affordable for the people of Halifax Atlantic. Our province needs a total change in direction in order to build a modern and sustainable economy,” said Brennan. “The high-cost agenda of the Liberals and the NDP are making life harder and Nova Scotians are looking to the PC Party to show them a better way forward.” 
 
Brennan says Baillie, a chartered accountant and former Credit Union Atlantic president, has the right experience to turn Nova Scotia’s economy around. 
 
“Jamie Baillie is an experienced leader who knows how to create good jobs by lowering taxes, freezing power rates and stopping wasteful spending,” Brennan said.
 
There is a clear choice in the next election between the PC Party of Nova Scotia, led by Jamie Baillie and the Liberals and the NDP. Brennan  said a good example is Baillie’s plan to freeze power rates, while the Liberals and the NDP have expensive energy agendas that 
will cost ratepayers more. He also noted the NDP and Liberals stood side by side in letting labour disputes shut down hospitals
 
Baillie spoke at tonight’s event and is excited about Ryan Brennan’s candidacy.
 
“Ryan’s experience as a lawyer will be put to use as he advocates for the people of Halifax Atlantic,” said Baillie. “The high-tax plan of the NDP has made life harder for Nova Scotians and Halifax Atlantic will be well served by having someone of Ryan’s experience representing them in the House of Assembly.” 
 
Brennan says he plans to spend the coming weeks and months meeting with voters and discussing their priorities.
