Cape Breton Farmers Market manager Pauline Singer will carry the PC banner in Sydney-Membertou in the next provincial election.
Singer was instrumental in the relocation and construction of the market’s new location in downtown Sydney and is an enthusiastic supporter of the entrepreneurs at the market.
She worked in the insurance industry for a decade and served in the Canadian Armed Forces Reserves (Army Communications) for six years.
“PC leader Tim Houston’s leadership is just what our province needs to move forward,” Singer explained. “His common sense and down-to-earth approach are essential to our growth. One thing that impresses me about him is that he listens to understand and values what others can bring to the table.”
Singer served on the Nova Scotia Insurance Women’s Association executive, is a founding member of the Spanish Bay Women's Institute and is currently a member of the Board of Directors for the Farmers Markets of Nova Scotia.
In addition, she ran the Greenhouse/Garden program for residents at Breton Ability Centre. She worked for the Cape Breton Victoria Regional Centre for Education, providing hands-on programming for school gardens.
“When it comes to working to make her community better and stronger, Pauline Singer is a powerhouse,” Houston said. “The residents of Sydney-Membertou will have a vocal and effective voice at Province House with Pauline as their MLA.”
Singer lives in Coxheath with her husband and their two children.
