MEET THE CAN­DI­DATE

NORTH­SIDE-WEST­MOUNT

Cape Breton Post - - News -

Name: John Hig­gins Age: 49 Mar­i­tal sta­tus: Mar­ried

Kids / Grand­kids: Three chil­dren and a grandaugh­ter.

Wins in his po­lit­i­cal ca­reer as can­di­date: Ran in the gen­eral pro­vin­cial elec­tion in 2013.

Losses in his po­lit­i­cal ca­reer as can­di­date: Lost in 2013 by 463 votes.

Personal Ma­jor Plat­form Themes: My ma­jor con­cern is the state of health care, in par­tic­u­lar the fu­ture of the Nor­thide Gen­eral Hospi­tal and its Emer­gency De­part­ment. It is crit­i­cal to re­cruit more doc­tors and spe­cial­ists to this area. I also plan to seek out fund­ing for re­cre­ation and com­mu­nity fa­cil­i­ties in North­side-West­mount, and to pur­sue any op­por­tu­nity that brings jobs to this rid­ing.
