Liberal Leo Glavine, the incumbent in Kings West, has a “feeling the Liberal party will do well” in the riding.
A veteran of three previous elections in 2009, 2006 and 2003, Glavine knows what to expect on election night. But he says this election is definitely different, with the Liberal party poised to make considerable gains across the province. Polls are indicating a Liberal majority may be in the cards.
“I think we really do have a great chance to form government,” he said.
During the 30-day campaign, Glavine has been humbled by the level of support and the thanks he has received while knocking on approximately 4,000 doors in the constituency. He recognizes that, for incumbents, an election is like a report card.
“People can make their decisions based on my work,” he explained.
He is confident voters in the district are familiar with his work ethic and the various bills he has spearheaded and the causes he has championed in the past 10 years.
Going door-to-door, he has learned the party’s “modest financial platform” has been well-received by voters.
Glavine, who resides in North Kingston, voted midday at the Kingston fire hall with his granddaughters, Carman and Kennedy, at this side. He gave a big thumbs up to Elections Nova Scotia for encouraging voters to take young family members to polling stations.
He plans to await the results of his own constituency and of his Liberal colleagues at a gathering of his supporters at the Aylesford Lions Hall in Auburn.
