Baillie says Halman’s community leadership great for next PC government

Tim Halman, PC Candidate, Dartmouth EastDARTMOUTH, NS – Tim Halman, a recognized leader in education, will be the Progressive Conservative Party’s candidate in Dartmouth East in the next provincial election.

Halman was officially acclaimed the party’s standard bearer in the constituency on Thursday, June 16.

Halman believes in the importance of making sure youth feel connected to their community. For over a decade, Halman has worked to engage youth in the political process and in 2014 was named Canada’s Everyday political citizen of the year for his work in this regard. In 2015, he was nominated by the Halifax Regional School Board for the Superintendents Award for Teaching Excellence.

Halman was a volunteer with Big Brothers/Sisters and served on the jury to select the 2015 everyday political citizen and the youth citizen of the year. Halman has been involved in the development of youth in athletics and has served as team manager to his local rugby team since 2006 along with volunteering with the Nova Scotia School Athletic Federation.

Like many Nova Scotians, Halman is concerned with the lack of leadership and vision with the McNeil Liberals.

“Jamie Baillie is the only leader talking about issues that truly matter to Nova Scotians. From mental health services, to the film tax credit to education reform, Jamie Baillie is the leader that will grow our economy and position Nova Scotia to be prosperous,” Halman said. “I am honoured to join his team and work for better access to mental health services, a competitive film tax credit, growing the economy and education reform.”

Baille says that Halman’s community engagement and outreach make him a great PC candidate for Dartmouth East.

“I have had many opportunities to witness firsthand Tim’s tireless efforts in his various volunteer community organizations,” Baillie said. “I know he will bring that energy and dedication to serve the people of Dartmouth East in the next PC government.”

Tim Halman is married to Ginette Thibault-Halman and they have two daughters Sophie and Ella and reside in Dartmouth East.

The Dartmouth East Progressive Conservative Association will hold an official nomination meeting which will be scheduled to celebrate Halman’s candidacy in the coming weeks.
