Feb 25th, 2010 – MLA Back to Balance Consultation Meeting

If you or your organization have an e-newsletter, website or email database, would you consider sending this message to as many people as you can?

Good afternoon,
I invite you to help shape the future of our province. The Minister of Finance is holding public meetings in 16 communities across Nova Scotia to discuss how to get the province’s finances back to balance. I am very pleased that Minister Graham Steele will be in the area on Thursday, February 25 , 7:00-9:00 p.m.  Shining Waters Marine, 148 Nautical Way (Google maps link at the bottom of the email)

This facilitated dialogue will focus on getting your input on four main questions:
1.   What should the government do to increase revenues and reduce spending?
2.   What changes should be made to programs and services? Are there things government
      should do better, stop doing or do more of?
3.  What investments should be made today that will help to grow the economy in the long-term?
4.   How soon should government bring Nova Scotia’s finances back to balance?
If you are able to attend and have internet access, you may want to review the Back to Balance guide available in several formats at http://gov.ns.ca/finance/backtobalance. This document will also be available for all participants at the session.
Your input is important to me and the people of Hammonds Plains – Upper Sackville. Please do not hesitate to contact our office. All the best.
