Cole Harbour, NS – With over 15 years of experience in sales, client relations’ and proven leadership skills, Chris Mont will be the Progressive Conservative candidate for Cole Harbour-Portland Valley. He won the nomination earlier this evening.
Public service is important to the Mont family. Chris is the son of the late Stephen Mont, a former Councillor and past Nova Scotia PC Party President as well as Nadine Cooper Mont, a former Deputy Minister. Mont says he’s frustrated with the direction the province is going under Premier Stephen McNeil.
“One of the reasons I wanted to run is because of the failed negotiations with the province’s teachers,” says Mont. “I believe that proper investment in our classrooms is the key to our children’s future and our shared economic success. It’s now clear that the only way we’ll get meaningful classroom reform is with a new government.”
Mont says Jamie Baillie is the right choice to lead that new government.
“Jamie Baillie is a competent leader with a proven track record,’ says Mont. “He has a vision and a plan Nova Scotians can count on to turn this economy around. That’s how we’ll be able to invest in important areas like healthcare and education.”
Baillie says he’s thrilled to welcome Mont to the PC team.
“Chris is committed to Cole Harbour – Portland Valley and understands the good work committed public servants can do,” says Baillie. “He will be a strong addition to our new PC team.”
Chris Mont lives with his wife Bobbi Jo Mont and their two sons, Cooper and Oliver. They call Cole Harbour home.
