Pictou County councillor Mary Wooldridge-Elliott has been nominated as the Liberal candidate for the upcoming byelection in Pictou West.

As a lifelong resident of Pictou West, Mary is dedicated to the community and the families who live within it. In 2020, she was elected councillor for District Four and currently serves on multiple committees.


“I’m thrilled to be nominated as the Liberal candidate for Pictou West. Our province is facing generational crises in housing and affordability that have not been addressed by the Houston Conservatives,” said Wooldridge-Elliott. “Over the coming weeks, I look forward to connecting with residents and becoming a strong voice for the people of Pictou West.”


Mary spent 20 years working in retail and has been a proud bus driver for Chignecto Central Regional Centre for Education for over 22 years. Throughout her career, Mary has made meaningful connections with students and families in Pictou West.


“I’m so pleased to have Mary represent our party in this byelection. Families in Pictou West are facing the consequences of inaction from the Houston government on key files like affordability, housing, and healthcare,” said Liberal Leader Zach Churchill. “I know that Mary is the right person to tackle these issues and I look forward to having her on our team to represent the constituents of Pictou West.”
