Journal Pioneer - - FRONT PAGE -

O’LEARY – The only Prince Ed­ward Is­land New Demo­crat ever elected to the pro­vin­cial leg­is­la­ture says he wants to rep­re­sent the peo­ple of Dis­trict 25 again. Herb Dick­ieson took the party’s Dis­trict 25 (O’Leary-In­ver­ness) nom­i­na­tion by ac­cla­ma­tion Wed­nes­day night. The re­tired fam­ily physi­cian is en­cour­aged that the party al­ready has 100 signed-up mem­bers in the dis­trict, more than it had when he was elected to the leg­is­la­ture in 1996. At­tract­ing more doc­tors and nurses to the re­gion so res­i­dents can feel their health care needs are be­ing met, cre­at­ing more em­ploy­ment op­por­tu­ni­ties for area res­i­dents and im­prov­ing con­di­tions for the dis­trict’s in­dige­nous pop­u­la­tion, are some of the ob­jec­tives Dick­ieson says he will be work­ing to­wards.
