Thank you for dropping by my candidate site. Here is my story....
My name is Ray Mattie and I am from Monastery, Antigonish County.
My commitment is to making Antigonish Town & County a place where new entrepreneurs see our community as a place to develop businesses, more young adults can build their professional lives, our area becomes one of opportunity through investment attraction and seniors receive the support they deserve.
I am a graduate of St.FX University with a Bachelor’s Degree in Political Science and a graduate of the NSCC School of Business with a Post Graduate Diploma in Human Resources Management. Additionally, I hold an International Trade Certificate from the Export Canada Program (FITT). I recently completed a contract with the Human Recourses Department at the University of Alberta in Edmonton where I aided senior managers in policy development and labour relations.
My professional life is that of an arts/culture employer. In this role I created many direct and indirect jobs and contributed directly to the economic viability of the Nova Scotia professional arts industry. I have a clients across America & Canada such as major festival programmers, high profile companies, federal departments, pro sports teams and crown corporations. However, most importantly, I have worked with various organizations and charity events in the Town & County of Antigonish.
My favourite pastimes include spending quality time with family and friends, working out at the gym, healthy cooking, watching way too much hockey and any outdoor activity such as skating and biking.
My wife Brenda and I have two daughters: Alyssa & Emma.
