Norma McColeman seeks PC nomination in Summerside-WilmotSummerside– Summerside City Councillor Norma McColeman today officially announced her plans to seek the Progressive Conservative nomination in District 21, Summerside-Wilmot.
“The people of our community matter to me. That’s why I have spent my adult life working to enhance the quality of life of our residents through small business entrepreneurship, improving access to services for families, as a volunteer, and serving as a City Councillor. I think that I could be a strong representative for the people of Summerside-Wilmot in the Legislature,” said McColeman.
Elected to Summerside City Council multiple times, McColeman is currently the Councillor for Ward 6 (Centre East Downtown) and has held numerous responsibilities on City Council.
McColeman has helped to deliver frontline services to vulnerable Islanders for nearly two decades, working for the last 17 years as Outreach Coordinator with PEI Family Violence Prevention Services Inc. In this role McColeman worked directly with victims of family violence as well as helping coordinate public education and training with social service groups. McColeman also has served as a board member of the National Council of Welfare.
Long active in her community, McColeman has volunteered with the Canadian Mental Health Association, the East Prince Youth Development Centre, the Aboriginal Women’s Association, and served as an emergency foster parent for at-risk youth. In 2013 McColeman was awarded the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee Medal for community service.
A long-time Summerside resident, McColeman and her husband Murray are proud parents and grandparents.
