Small business owner and Deputy Warden for East Hants, John A. MacDonald, will be the PC candidate for Hants East in the upcoming provincial election.
MacDonald owns and operates E-Commerce Solutions by Canucks Inc, which writes software for the Transportation Industry with customers in Canada, the US and Mexico.
“I’m so thrilled to be part of the PC team with leader Tim Houston at the helm,” says MacDonald. “It is a privilege to get things done for the people of East Hants. If given the honour to be the Member of the Legislative Assembly, I promise to continue to fight and be an advocate for our communities.”
Given the many plans and practical solutions the PC Party has put forward, MacDonald said it was a natural fit.
“Too many rural Nova Scotians don’t have a family doctor,” says MacDonald. “But the PCs have released common sense plans to reduce wait times, improve long-term care and make sure people have access to primary care. We also know that after the pandemic, we are going to need bold ideas to jumpstart our economy and get things moving again.”
Houston is pleased to have John join the team.
“John knows what it takes to be a good elected official. He knows that constituents come first and that he is a voice for their issues and concerns,” says Houston. “John’s extensive experience working with business and communities will serve him very well as an MLA.”
MacDonald has been very active in his community. John was a volunteer firefighter for almost ten years in Lantz. As a current member of Colchester-East Hants Health Board and member East Hants Chamber of Commerce, he has worked closely with residents within his community to enhance recreation options and understands that real affordable housing in the area is lacking.
John lives in Lantz, with daughter Teresa.
