Ginny Hurlock of Bear River is seeking the Progressive Conservative nomination in the Annapolis riding. A provincial election could be called for as early as June 25.
Bear River’s Ginny Hurlock will be seeking the Progressive Conservative nomination in Annapolis in the upcoming provincial election, the party announced in a press release Monday.
Hurlock, a resident of Bear River and owner, Barnwood Inn Bed and Breakfast, said she is excited to seek the nomination and serve the constituents of Annapolis County.
If successful in her bid to become PC candidate, she goes up against Stephen McNeil, Nova Scotia Liberal leader and incumbent MLA who was nominated April 21. No NDP candidate has been nominated to date, but party officials in Halifax told The Spectator there will be activity in the area in the next few weeks.
A provincial election could be called for as early as June 25.
Hurlock has been active with the Royal Canadian Legion, The King’s Theatre in Annapolis Royal, local boards of trade and farmers’ markets and the Digby Area Tourism Association since arriving to the area eight years ago.
A nomination event is scheduled in a few weeks with PC Party leader Jamie Baillie.
A Progressive Conservative government will benefit the people of Annapolis, the press release said.
“It’s time to change direction and Jamie Baillie is an experienced leader who knows how to create good jobs by lowering taxes, freezing power rates, and stopping wasteful spending,” the party said.
Hurlock, an immigrant from Essex England, brings extensive knowledge of issues and concerns of attracting new world-class citizens to rural Nova Scotia.
“The people of Annapolis would be very well served by having someone of Ginny’s perspective and experience representing them in the House of Assembly,” The party said.
Nominations for those seeking the Annapolis PC nomination close May 10.
