Constituency resident Shannon Benoit agreed.
The primary concerns coming from rural voters, MacDonald said, surround the need for assistance for small business and the agricultural industry while those in the urban areas of the riding are "quite concerned about the high tax rates and the power rates."
Listening to the criticism from her former PC colleagues about her party switch, however, leaves Casey believing ". that they do not understand what an MLA's office should be all about."
In 2006 and again in 2009 she ran successful campaigns, taking more than 50 per cent of the riding's votes in each election. During that period, she also gained ministerial experience with the PCs in the departments of education and health.
the truth, not what you want to hear, basically."
But MacDonald said he believes the issue of an MLA switching parties between elections is also important because the constituents should know the person they supported at the election booth continues to share common interests and direction.
"I believe what Karen stands for. I believe she has done a great job with her constituents in the area thus far. I just think that she's very personable," she said. "I think she's a really up front and honest person. She says what's on her mind and it's not a facade. She tells you Nike Air Max 95 Boots Green

And as voters "watch the tactics of the others now," she said, "they recognize there was good reason."
In 2009, when the NDP was given its first opportunity to take the provincial reins, people wanted change and were optimistic that a new government could deliver the promises upon which they were elected. But Casey said the message she is receiving is that that didn't happen.
And while his wife will be voting Liberal, the man said, one sentiment they share is that Casey's decision to cross the floor is not an issue.
"Not necessarily change only in government but change in the direction we're running this province," he said.
Benoit said she has looked at the platforms being offered by all three parties and at the end of the day, the Liberals came out on top, in part because of the local candidate.
"There seems to be a disappointment and a dissatisfaction with what hasn't transpired," she said, of concerns over the province's economical woes and job creation issues.
But the end of the day, regardless of what party is represented, Casey believes the most important element between a voter and their elected representative is how their concerns are received and dealt with.
"I do not like the NDP's platform," the man said. "They've given too much away to big corporations when they said they were not going to when they were voted in. And they have broken too many promises. We're tired of them."
'"We need a change,'" Casey said of the doorstep sentiment. '"We can't have another four years of this.'"
Another voter from the riding, who did not wish to have his name published, said he has not spoken to any of the three candidates. But he said the PC's platform on job creation, moving away from defined pension plans for MLAs, tax cuts and the party's position against providing forgivable loans to large corporations were the deciding factors in winning his vote.

with the PCs came to a stormy end when she crossed the floor and became a member of the Liberal Party of Nova Scotia. It was a move that came with much consternation from those within the Progressive Conservative fold and which has continued to follow her into this campaign.
And it's certainly not what the voters she has been communicating with are concerned about, she said.
"I think it's generally accepted that people are not influenced by that," she said, of the floor crossing, despite calls from within the PC camp that legislation should be enacted for forced by elections when an MLA decides to change parties.
"In fact, I'm hearing people saying, 'we don't know why you did it but we believe it was for the right reason.'"
"That's what I'm primarily hearing form the heavily populated areas of my constituency," he said.
From Casey's perspective, however, it was much needed change in order for her to stay true to her own political beliefs and one she believes is best for the constituents she serves.
That sentiment is shared by John K. MacDonald, the riding's PC candidate in this election, who said 85 to 90 per cent of the people he has spoken to after knocking on more than 2,500 doors, are also demanding change.
Having grown up in the midst of a Progressive Conservative family, when Casey decided to enter politics following more than 30 years as an educator, she naturally chose that party in which to run.
"When you are elected as an MLA your constituency office is completely non partisan," she said. "You can't be seen to be working for or with any political party. You are there to work for your constituents. And when you start mixing party politics with your role as an MLA then you are really doing a disservice to some of your constituents. That's not what I was elected to do. I was elected to represent and be a voice for my constituents and so that's what I've stood up for and that's what I continue to do."
