Councillor Ben Nickerson

Ben was born in Shelburne just a few months after the Roseway Hospital was open and lived here the first 5 years of his life.  He has lived all over Shelburne County, Halifax and most recently spent 12 years in Bridgewater before setting back into his hometown with his wife Sarah and 2 daughters, Ella and Mary.  Ben believes in the retention of our young population, creation of small businesses and a strong arts community are integral to this Town.  Ben has been heavily involved in bringing high calibre musical acts to town, and is involved in several community committees.

"I am honoured to be part of this Town Council and I am prepared to listen and take action when approached with your concerns"
