Shaun Hatfield, District 3
District 3 - West Head, Newellton, Centreville and North East Point
Councillor Hatfield started serving people as a child at his father's general store - Hatfield's Market. He has also served his Cape Island community for over two decades as a Pastor and family/relationship counsellor. His vocation has given him the privilege to share in some of the most intimate and tender human moments. Shaun believes that trust is the most sacred thing people can extend to each other, and that it is important for local government to honour public trust by valuing community needs above all else. Therefore, Shaun is passionate about community health and development within the Municipality of Barrington. Shaun is currently serving his fourth term on Council. He is especially motivated to advocate for “the little guy” or any group which is marginalized and underrepresented in community. Shaun is likewise passionate about sticking up for rural areas when it comes to community growth, economic development, communication and transportation needs, and health care/ essential services.
On a personal note, Shaun is an avid long distance runner and loves to swim year round in the Atlantic Ocean. Shaun and his wife, Carla, reside at Villagedale, N.S.
