Alana Paon to run in next election
Business consultant, farmer and Isle Madame native Alana Paon will be the Progressive Conservative candidate in Cape Breton-Richmond in the upcoming provincial election.
In addition to working in business and agriculture, Paon has served in the fields of entrepreneurship, youth leadership and community economic development. Her roots in the riding go back 250 years and her family’s core values are what attracted her to the PCs.
“Jamie Baillie believes in the core values of hard work, living within your means and helping your neighbor. These are Progressive Conservative values and they’re Cape Breton-Richmond values,” said Paon. For his part, Baillie says he’s excited about Paon joining the Progressive Conservative team.
“Alana is the fresh face Cape Breton-Richmond needs in the House of Assembly,” said Baillie. “I have no doubt she will bring a high degree of integrity and common sense to the floor of the legislature. She will play a big role in the next Progressive Conservative government.”
The Cape Breton-Richmond Progressive Conservatives will be holding a formal nomination meeting to celebrate Paon’s candidacy in the coming weeks.
