NDP candidate for the vacant Rothesay MLA seat Dominic Cardy is out of the hopper first with an election promise.
Cardy says if elected, he will introduce the Rothesay Charter to End Patronage.
The charter will include a ban to hiring based on political affiliation, with the exception of employees directly employed by elected officials. It would also include new rules for hiring CEOs of Crown Corporations, that would require an impartial hiring process controlled by an independent third party.
The election takes place June 25th.
