Provincial Tourism, Culture and Heritage Minister Trevor Holder winning the Conservative party nomination in Saint John Portland unopposed.
Holder tells CHSJ News voters will have a simple choice to make on September 22nd between the guys who spent money like a drunken sailor, tried to put the locks on U-N-B Saint John and attempted to sell NB Power or the Conservatives who have reduced the provincial debt and have a plan to revitalise the economy.
Premier David Alward says he met recently with 25 ambassadors from the European Union and energy exports from Saint John were foremost in their thoughts because of what's happening in the Ukraine and Russia. He adds India wants to quintuple the imports of natural gas over the next six years.
Meantime, Bill Oliver of Kiersteadville will run for the Conservatives in Kings Centre. He most recently worked as Executive Assistant to Provincial Finance Minister Blaine Higgs.
