Rebecca Taylor will represent the Progressive Conservatives in Colchester North come the next provincial election.
Taylor was the winner in a nomination meeting held April 22. Her competitors included Eric Boutilier, Tyler Fraser and Michele Toole.
Known to many as the owner and operator of Pearl & Daisy Natural Soap Company, Taylor believes her innovative approach will help serve the people living in the riding, from Lower Five Islands to Valley to Tatamagouche.
“Real leadership means listening to what people need, and having the courage and good sense to make it happen,” said Taylor in a press release announcing her intent to run for the nomination. “Colchester North is looking for a new representative to put us back on track. I’d like to be that person.”
When the net provincial election is called, Taylor will go up against incumbent Karen Casey, with the Liberals, and NDP candidate James Finnie.
Taylor’s family roots run deep in the Londonderry area, where she currently lives with her husband and two teenage daughters.
Pearl, her great-grandmother, and Pearl’s sister, Daisy, grew up in Londonderry.
“I can’t imagine a prettier place to raise a family,” she said.
