HALIFAX, NS – Sarah Reeves will be the Progressive Conservative candidate in Sackville-Beaver Bank in the upcoming provincial election.
Reeves says after four years of broken promises by the Dexter NDP, including election promises to keep the Cobequid Health Centre open 24/7 and not to raise the HST, Nova Scotians are looking for real change.
“Like many Nova Scotians, I’m tired of the broken promises, of the NDP saying one thing and doing another, of the backwards priorities,” said Reeves. “I was excited to put my name forward to be the PC MLA in Sackville-Beaver Bank. It’s time for a change in direction and I believe a PC government led by Jamie Baillie is the only choice to get it right for families.”
Reeves says keeping taxes low and ensuring businesses have the tools to create needed jobs are key to modern economy.
“The PC Party, led by Jamie Baillie, will put money back in the pockets of Nova Scotia families by lowering the HST and keeping the debt in check by stopping the run of deficit budgets the NDP have left us with,” said Reeves.
Baillie says he has known Reeves for over a decade and is excited to hit the campaign trail with her in Sackville-Beaver Bank.
“Sarah’s love of politics led to her to British Columbia for six years but love for her province is what brought her back,” said Baillie. “Her experience has given her the skills essential to get the job done and people in Sackville-Beaver Bank will be well served with Sarah as their MLA.”
Reeves was raised in Sackville and graduated from Sackville High School before receiving a Bachelor of Arts from Saint Mary’s University. She worked as a communications professional in the British Columbia government before joining the Progressive Conservative Caucus as the Senior Communications Officer in 2009. Reeves is an active community volunteer who gives her time and talents to a major annual fundraiser for Hope Cottage and the Blue Nose Marathon. She was also the communications, marketing and sponsorship leads during the 2011 Canada Games at Sackville High.
