It is extremely important, as your MLA and Provincial representative, to be as open and transparent to my constituents as possible. In 2010, the Nova Scotia Government began posting monthly the expenses of each individual MLA. You can find my monthly expenses by clicking the link below.
What MLAs Do For Nova Scotia
There are 52 Members of the Legislative Assembly (MLAs) representing the 52 electoral districts of Nova Scotia.
In addition to helping our constituents locate the programs and services you need, meeting with community groups to share ideas and taking your concerns to the government’s decision-making table, MLAs also make changes to government policies and legislation.
For instance, the political party I belong to has always worked to make positive changes to improve our healthcare system, clean up our environment, create jobs, give a reason for young people to stay here at home and help seniors and the poor. So we craft legislation to introduce in Province House that will begin to do these things.
Growing Our Democracy
Elections Nova Scotia has two great sites that can help us teach our children the importance of an active democracy.
