Councillor Sheldon RingerI was born in Shelburne. When Gull Rock lighthouse was automated my family moved to Cape Breton. After graduating college I worked in the computer repair field in Shelburne before opening my own computer sales and service business. It has grown over the years offering more services and employing three people. I am proud to call Shelburne home and enjoy the rewarding rural lifestyle that it offers.   

I strongly believe that we as a community have accomplished a lot of great things. I believe that by working closely with the Municipality of the District of Shelburne, and the Town of Lockeport that we can continue to prosper. It is with fair open dialogue that I hope to encourage this.  

As a small business owner I am financially responsible and understand some of the challenges to business growth in our community. I also understand the need that local government provides services to its residents to improve the community and encourage development and growth. It is with the passion of the community to thrive, the commitment of town staff to excel, and the intelligence and wisdom of the town council that I hope to play a part in improving our great community.
