GUYSBOROUGH – Rob Wolf has secured the PC nomination for Guysborough-Eastern Shore-Tracadie.
Wolf, a teacher and counsellor, says he decided to get involved in politics because he tired of seeing so many young people having to leave their homes to find opportunities elsewhere.
“It is disheartening to see so many families broken up because of the lack of employment in the province, especially in rural areas,” Wolf says. “I believe Jamie Baillie and the PC Party have an excellent plan to create conditions to help stem the tide of outmigration.”
Wolf graduated from St. Francis Xavier University with Bachelor’s degrees in Music, Education and a Masters in Teaching English. He also holds a Master’s degree from Acadia in Counselling Psychology. He has taught and been a school counsellor at St. Mary’s Academy in Sherbrooke for over twenty-six years and worked part-time at St. FX for the past seven years.
Wolf believes that rural areas have much to contribute to the province and more focus should be paid to them.
“The Ivany Report was clear in the fact that rural areas would be key to getting the province on the right track,” Wolf says. “Instead we’ve only seen this Liberal government continue to take services away from rural areas. That needs to change.”
Wolf recently received the Atlantic Association of Registrar’s and Admissions Officer’s Award for Excellence for his work with students. He has served on community boards supporting Sherbrooke Village, as well as sports and the Arts within the community. Wolf has been involved with many music and theatre productions over the years as a writer, performer and director.
Wolf, who served as the President of the Central Nova Conservative Association for five years, has a keen interest in rebuilding the rural economy in Nova Scotia to enable young people to live and raise families in the place they are proud to call home.
Wolf is a proud father of three children, two stepchildren and two grandchildren. He is married to Corrie and they reside in Lochiel Lake, NS.
The nomination period for Guysborough-Eastern Shore-Tracadie closed Friday, September 16.
