BROOKLYN, NS – Janice Munroe Dodge will be the Progressive Conservative candidate for Hants West in the next provincial election.

Munroe Dodge won the nomination earlier this evening in a hotly contested race.

Munroe Dodge works at the West Hants Education Centre and strongly believes that Hants West is rich with opportunities for physical and social activity. She says she is drawn to the Progressive Conservatives because Jamie Baillie realizes that rural economies are an integral part of Nova Scotia’s future prosperity.

“I believe people in smaller, rural communities can thrive economically, improving their quality of life,” Munroe Dodge said. “Jamie Baillie understands that in order to have the social services we require, such as healthcare and education, we need to implement effective economic policies.”

Janice graduated from Dalhousie University with a B.A. in Sociology with professional interests in the areas of community promotion and engagement, and health and well-being.

Jamie Baillie says he’s excited about Munroe Dodge’s candidacy and believes her experience in health and well-being will serve her well in the next PC government.

“Janice is a very engaged citizen in her community,” Baillie says. “People relate to her very well and I know this will go a long way to making sure the concerns of Hants West are heard in the House of Assembly.”

Her extracurricular activities include playing the piano, outdoor adventure, reading, and spending time laughing with family and friends. From an early age she has volunteered and participated in community organizations lending to an appreciation of clear direction and effective policy. She is the pianist, moderator and lifelong member of Newport Baptist Church in Scotch Village.

Janice and her husband Jody live in Summerville with their two dachshunds.
