My name is Sam Austin and I’m the councillor for Dartmouth Centre. I’m an urban planner and I decided to run to help make Dartmouth and the Halifax Regional Municipality as a whole an even more amazing place to live, work and play. The future is bright in Dartmouth, and if we work together, we can make it even brighter.

A good councillor is someone who both engages the community and brings new ideas to the table. Here on my website you can find my summaries of what’s up at Council, updates from HRM on ongoing projects, and my archived newsletters. My goal is provide you with a good understanding of what’s going on at council, in the community, and my take on various issues.

I’m eager to hear your thoughts and ideas about how we can create an even better Dartmouth, so please get in touch on any issue or concern that you might have. I’m honoured that you have put your trust in me and have given me the chance to serve our community.
