Susan Corkum-Greek re-offering as PC candidate in Lunenburg

LUNENBURG – Susan Corkum-Greek will be the Progressive Conservative candidate in Lunenburg in the next provincial general election.

First elected in 2021, Corkum-Greek has helped build up the constituency of Lunenburg through the following investments:

  • Investing $83 million in a new pre-Primary to Grade 12 school for the New Germany area;

  • More than $5.6 million for infrastructure modernization along iconic Edgewater Street in Mahone Bay;

  • More than $5.6 million for the Green Street sidewalk renewal project in Lunenburg, the expansion of the Cookville wastewater treatment facility and new accessible sidewalks on Nathan Cirillo Road and Pine Grove Road in Cookville;

  • $4.7 million to purchase, renovate and convert the former Wheelhouse Motel property into mixed-income housing for healthcare workers;

  • $1 million for pool upgrades in the Town of Mahone Bay; and

  • Funding for a wide range of community projects, including the Lunenburg Farmers’ Market Association, Mahone Bay Founders Society, Indian Point Volunteer Fire Department, West Northfield Community Centre Association, Walden Fire Department, Lunenburg Academy Foundation, West Northfield Elementary School, New Germany Elementary School, Mahone Bay Centre Society, Bluenose Lodge Holdings, Lunenburg Yacht Club, Riverport Community Centre, Lunenburg Folk Harbour Society, Westmount Road Inc, Lunenburg Doc Fest Association, The 644 Revitalization Network, Royal Canadian Legion 102 New Germany, Nova Scotia Sea School, South Shore-Annapolis Valley Recreational Trail Association, Adventure Trail Association, Dynamite Trail Association, Lahave River Trail Association and Lunenburg Curling Club. 

“It’s been the honour of a lifetime to work as MLA for the community I have always called home,” said Corkum-Greek. “The people of Lunenburg can count on me to be their strong voice to get things done and deliver results. By working together as a community, we can keep fixing what was broken by the previous Liberal government and build better.”

Corkum-Greek has served as Minister of Economic Development in Premier Tim Houston’s government since 2021, part of a record number of female cabinet ministers for any government of any party. Before her election to the Legislature, Corkum-Greek spent nearly two decades in community journalism.  Her professional and community experience also extended to tourism, culture, small manufacturing and the chamber of commerce movement. She also played key roles in the Lunenburg Waterfront Association and the Lunenburg Academy of Music Performance.

“Susan Corkum-Greek knows community. She knows business. She knows how to get things done,” said Houston. “I need Susan Corkum-Greek re-elected as MLA to continue the work of our government to build up the constituency of Lunenburg and all Nova Scotia. We can’t go back to a government that ignores healthcare, neglects seniors, fights with workers, and supports the Liberal carbon tax.
