What People Are Saying

I believe that Julie would be an outstanding representative. She is honest, committed to family, community and she cares about what effects them. With Julie there is nothing hidden, shes an open book and if she tells you she will do something, she will do it. She is a smart choice.

Susana Sears

Julie would be a great addition to NS Politics. She is an outsider to Politics, however having been in business leadership roles over the past several years, I think she could be a great asset to this Province going forward.

Sheila Margeson

Julie is amazing at solving problems. She is very business savvy but also understands the needs of the everyday person. She is an excellent alternative to the run of the mill politician.
