Brownlow secures PC nomination in Dartmouth North

February 28, 2013 at 2:50 pm

DARTMOUTH, NS – Retired Police Sergeant and long-time area resident Séan Brownlow announced today he will be the Progressive Conservative candidate in Dartmouth North.
 
“Most of my life has been spent living, working and volunteering in Dartmouth North. I know the people, the issues and the organizations that make up this very diverse provincial district,” said Brownlow. “The people of Dartmouth North deserve to be represented by someone from the area that cares about our future, and someone that they can trust.”
 
Brownlow says PC Party leader Jamie 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,” said Brownlow. “I have known Jamie for the last five years, initially through the United Way. I’ve followed his political career with great interest, and it is his compassion for people that encouraged me to seek the nomination.” 
 
Brownlow differentiated between the policies of the other two parties by pointing out that both 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.
 
After an exemplary police career of more than thirty years, Séan retired 12 years ago and wishes to serve his community once again, this time as MLA.
 
Public service is something of a family tradition for Brownlow. He is the son of former Dartmouth mayor, Daniel Brownlow.
 
Séan lives one block away from the original Brownlow family home, where his father Danny has lived for fifty-five years. Séan has coached and refereed minor sports, been a member of school executives, church councils, and boys and girls clubs. Christmas Daddies, United Way projects and many other outreach programs have also benefitted from Brownlow’s tireless efforts. He continues to use his musical talents with his Celtic band, The Sham-Rocks, playing in support of fundraisers for a variety of organizations and causes in Dartmouth North, and beyond.
