Jim Morton, NDP, Kings North
How has the campaign gone?
“The campaign has gone very well. I’m absolutely delighted. I have a great team of volunteers, and I’ve had great guidance.
“This was my fourth campaign in Kings North, and this has been the best one we’ve run – more people, more resources, and a wider range of support.”
Anything happen you didn’t expect?
“It’s been a different kind of campaign. I went in thinking there might be one or two major issues, and I’ve found people have a whole range of issues, from health care to education to power rates.”
“Some of the issues were the same ones I’ve heard for the last four years, and a lot of them were personal issues in terms of Nova Scotia politics.”
“I found people appreciate it will take more time. I’ve heard that message increasingly over the last few days.”
How are you feeling heading into election day?
“I’m a little lighter than I was, from all the walking I’ve done,” he quipped, “but I’m in good spirits and optimistic about (election day).
“At heart, I’m a democrat. I’m looking forward to seeing what the people decide, both here in Kings North and province-wide. Personally, I’m as eager now as I’ve ever been. There’s a great deal of work still to be done.”
