Sherwood educational assistant and community volunteer Susie Dillon announced she is seeking the Progressive Conservative nomination for the upcoming by-election in District 10, Charlottetown-Winsloe. 

No date has been set for the by-election, which will fill the seat vacated by former Liberal MLA Robert Mitchell, who announced on Sept. 3 he was stepping down to spend more time with his family. 

Dillon, a lifelong resident of Charlottetown, is excited to put her name forward to represent the district as part of Premier Dennis King’s government, she said in a press release on Sept. 19. 

“Over the last year and a half I have watched and been inspired by Premier Dennis King’s collaborative approach to governing when it comes to the issues that matter to families like mine - education, health care and sustainable community growth.” 

Dillon grew up in Sherwood and attended Sherwood Elementary School, Stonepark Intermediate, and Charlottetown Rural High School before graduating from Holland College’s Human Services program. Susie has worked as an Educational Assistant with the Public School Branch for the past 25 years. 
She now lives in Sherwood with her husband Mike and three sons and has been active in her community as a volunteer for many years. As a member of the Sherwood Home and School Association she helped introduce the school’s first breakfast program. She has also served as a director, manager and volunteer with the Charlottetown CanPower Skate Program, the Sherwood-Parkdale Minor Hockey Association Early Bird Tournament Committee, and local minor hockey and soccer teams. 
“I have been very fortunate to have grown up and raise a family in such a great community. I feel that I can make a positive contribution back to my community as part of the Dennis King PC team,” said Dillon in the release. 

The Liberal, Greens and NDP are all in the process of selecting candidates for the district, but have yet to put any names forward. 

If the PC government wins the seat, they would have a majority government.
