Councillor for District 13
Pam Lovelace Re-offers as Council Candidate for Halifax District 13,
Hammonds Plains-St. Margaret’s
Pam Lovelace announces her intention to re-offer as council candidate for District 13 Hammonds Plains-St. Margaret’s in this October’s election, following a solid campaign effort in October 2016.
Grateful for the support she received in the last municipal election, Pam is ready to serve her community on council. With over ten years experience in municipal government, including working as Legislative Support for Halifax’s Clerks Office, Pam brings a disciplined and community-minded approach to everything she does.
An active listener and problem solver, Pam looks forward to connecting with constituents in the coming months via video or telephone call or physically distanced discussions at cafés or parks. She wants to hear from residents and businesses impacted by the challenges caused by COVID-19 and beyond.
She says: “As Councillor for District 13, I will build on our strengths and work hard to overcome challenges. I will be a strong voice at City Hall to balance the interests of the district with those of the city of Halifax and Province of Nova Scotia.
“District 13 is made up of unique rural coastal communities and closely-knit subdivisions just a short distance from Atlantic Canada’s largest urban centre. We have so much potential, but District 13 needs a representative at City Hall who will facilitate sustainable growth, advocate for safe communities, and offer a balanced perspective on issues.”
Since the election in 2016, Pam worked at Dalhousie University as a communications advisor and project manager. She graduated with a Master of Education degree from Mount Saint Vincent University and pursued project management certification.
Over the last decade, Pam has been actively involved with many community groups. She was appointed by Halifax Council as a representative on several committees including North West Planning Advisory, St. Margaret’s Bay Coastal Advisory, and Arts Halifax Advisory. She is a past Chair of 250 Vimy Royal Canadian Air Cadet Squadron, the Hammonds Plains-Lucasville Memorial Committee that built the Veterans’ Monument in Uplands Park, and Maplewood on the Lakes Residents group.
Pam has served on the boards of non-profit organizations such as the St. Margaret’s Bay Food Bank and Equal Voice Canada. She currently serves on the Friends of Blue Mountain Birch Cove Lakes Society board of directors.
For her community service, Pam was awarded the Canadian Minister of Veterans Affairs Commendation, the Canada 150 Sesquicentennial Pin, Province of Nova Scotia Volunteer Award, and Halifax Regional Municipality Volunteer Award.
Pam lives in Hammonds Plains with her banjo-playing husband David, their two teenagers Ava and Callum, and an Australian shepherd, Luna.
