TRURO, NS – Community leader Keltie Jones will be the Progressive Conservative Party’s standard bearer in Truro in the upcoming provincial election. She secured the nomination on March 1st.
Jones, an Assistant Dean at Dalhousie University’s Faculty of Agriculture, has a law degree and a doctorate in business administration. She is passionate about working with students and fighting poverty in Nova Scotia.
Jones says she was drawn to the Progressive Conservatives after meeting leader Jamie Baillie.
“Jamie wants Nova Scotia to move forward and be a prosperous province,” says Jones. “I admire his dedication to embracing innovation. He is optimistic about the future of Nova Scotia and has a vision that will make our province stronger economically and socially. I look forward to spreading that message with him on the doorsteps in Truro-Bible Hill-Millbrook-Salmon River.”
Baillie says Jones’ commitment to helping people will serve her well as the member for Truro in the next PC government.
“Keltie has a lot to bring to the table,” says Baillie. “Her dedication to helping young people navigate and succeed in university, coupled with her commitment to battling poverty by building an economy that works for everyone, defines her character. She will play a big role in the next Progressive Conservative government.”
Jones lives with her wife Joy in Truro, Nova Scotia.
