COLCHESTER COUNTY, NS – Business owner and community volunteer Rebecca Taylor will be the Progressive Conservative candidate in Colchester North in the upcoming provincial election.
Taylor has more than 20 years experience in leadership and innovation. She is best known as the founder of the award-winning Pearl & Daisy Natural Soap Company. She has also worked in the public sector.
“Colchester North needs strong leadership to get us moving in the right direction so we can develop our local economy,” says Taylor. “Stephen McNeil’s Liberals have demonstrated time and time again that they are not up for the challenges that come with governing. It is time for a change. That’s why I’m stepping up as a member of Jamie Baillie’s strong Progressive Conservative team.”
Taylor says she was drawn to the Progressive Conservative team by Jamie Baillie’s long-term action plan to grow the economy and create good jobs.
“Jamie Baillie has been recognized for his leadership and negotiation skills in not only the public sector, but in the business world as well,” says Taylor. “He has a vision and a plan for Nova Scotia. We need him in the Premier’s office now.”
Baillie says he will be counting on Taylor’s business skills and community connections when the Progressive Conservatives form government.
“Rebecca has been a success in business, but equally impressive is her commitment to the community,” says Baillie. “Colchester North needs new leadership and a fresh face. I’m excited Rebecca’s stepping up and joining our stellar team.”
Rebecca’s community connections run deep. She’s a volunteer with Girl Guides of Canada and works with teens in an after-school recreation program.
She lives in Lornevale with her husband Dan and their two daughters.
