A new voice for Dartmouth Centre!

  My name is Bryn Jones-Vaillancourt, and I am running for the position of councillor for District Five - Dartmouth Centre.    Presently, I am a professional chef and I enjoy cooking and all its applications.  However, my other huge passion has always been politics and community involvement.   I have since my early twenties had a keen interest in running for public office, and finally I feel that the timing is right.  I feel that I have the insight, maturity and compassion to be beneficial as an elected official.

I am 32, and I have lived the majority of my life in Dartmouth.   I love Dartmouth, it is a wonderful community to live and work in.  We have beautiful parks, amazing recreation facilities and most important caring, engaged citizens.     I believe that we are at a time in our city's history of governance that we need a shift.   We need a council that will be open, honest and accountable.  We need a council that benefits both individual districts and the municipality as a whole.  We need a council that is engaged in both the districts that they serve, and the democratic process that we all value so much.

I strongly believe in giving back to the our community.  I have always been active in various community groups:

Canadian Cancer Society

Halifax Pride Committee

St. John's Pride

Kids Help Phone

Royal Canadian Cadet Corps #1 Nelson

Canadian Forces Rocks the Hill

International Fleet Week Review & Royal Canadian Naval Centennial

CFB Halifax - Health Promotion

Katimavik - Halifax Site


I look forward to a wonderful campaign of information, ideas and engagement with my fellow candidates and citizens of Dartmouth Centre.
