MEET THE CAN­DI­DATE

IN­VER­NESS

Cape Breton Post - - Cape Breton -

Name: Michelle Smith Age: 56 Mar­i­tal sta­tus: Sin­gle

Kids / Grand­kids: Rosie, 30, Lau­rel 28, Lin­den 21

Wins in her po­lit­i­cal ca­reer as can­di­date: None – though it's al­ways a win to get to talk about the is­sues!

Personal Ma­jor Plat­form Themes: Ru­ral eco­nomic de­vel­op­ment: gov­ern­ment should pro­vide the tools and frame­work to make it pos­si­ble. This means ed­u­ca­tion, health­care and com­mu­nity sup­port.

Notes: I am a sin­gle mother and farmer - an unusual com­bi­na­tion in it­self - and I still de­vote a lot of my time to vol­un­teer and char­i­ta­ble work, re­lated to agri­cul­ture and the com­mu­nity.
