Alana Paon to run in next elec­tion

Cape Breton Post - - CAPE BRETON -

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.
