A Different Voice for Halifax

I have been watching council since 2009 and I don’t see the tough decisions being made. The people at the bottom should not have to bear the brunt of the problems and be left without solutions. I have the education and experience to make tough decisions. As a woman, and as a person who is not able-bodied, I bring a different perspective to the table. I will have to do things differently—but that’s one of my numerous abilities!
