The PC candidate for Dartmouth South is construction industry veteran Chris Curtis.
“We can’t simply survive the pandemic; we need to emerge stronger, faster and more prosperous than ever.” Curtis said. “I am excited to be part of Tim Houston’s PC team that is so focussed on common sense solutions for our province.”
For the last 13 years, Curtis has worked in business development roles in the institutional, commercial, and industrial construction sectors. He has promoted Nova Scotia companies to new markets and potential clients and knows what it takes to help businesses succeed.
His commitment to serve the community comes naturally. His family have been tireless stewards of their community for many years. His mother volunteers within her faith community and his father works with the Royal Canadian Legion in support of our veterans. His sister is an active advocate for students with Dyslexia so they can obtain the necessary curriculum required to succeed.
Curtis, a former Cadet, started his volunteer experience in university where he assisted intellectually challenged adults. He volunteered in minor hockey, chaired the Max McKeen Martin Memorial Golf Tournament for the IWK Immunology Department and volunteered with the Construction Sector Council to encourage youth interest in the building trades and advance unionized trades.
“Chris Curtis is a hard worker who is determined to make a difference in his community,” said Houston. “He will be an effective voice for the people of Dartmouth South at Province House.”
Curtis is the proud father of three adult children. He and his partner and a cat named Jessie live in the “flower streets” of Dartmouth.
