Zann Resigns to Begin Her Federal Campaign
Lenore Zann, the NDP Member of the Legislature for Truro/Bible Hill, will resign her provincial seat this afternoon to begin her campaign, in earnest, as a Liberal candidate in the federal election for Cumberland-Colchester.
Zann is travelling to Halifax to formalize her resignation at 4 pm at Province House where she has served for ten years.
Zann had promised to resign the day after the election was formally underway. She said, “I have held off resigning as MLA until now as I have always felt a deep sense of duty to represent my constituents to the very best of my ability - and have never been a quitter.”
The provincial politician turned federal candidate added, “It’s not an easy thing to do as it’s very emotional for me to give up the job I love representing the community I love - especially not knowing what lies in store.”
On the heels of hurricane Dorian, she reiterated her concerns about climate change. Zann says, “The Climate Crisis is also real - and it concerns me greatly. We are feeling its effects already and future severe storms, flooding, and ocean rise could threaten our very existence.”
The candidate will hit the campaign trail tomorrow in Millbrook, followed by a Saturday evening appearance in Amherst.
