District profile:

Kings West includes the town of Berwick in the north and Aylesford and Greenwood in the south. This area of Kings County has undergone a period of economic growth this decade with an expansion at CFB Greenwood and other retailers and factories.

In 1993, it lost part of its territory to the districts of Kings North and Kings South.

Political history:

Kings West had been a Progressive Conservative stronghold for 25 years, at least until the middle of the 2000s. George Moody of Berwick, a former cabinet minister, represented the area as a Progressive Conservative for 20 years.

In 2003, the Tory electoral fortunes turned. Liberal Leo Glavine defeated incumbent Jon Carey by 116 votes and repeated the feat with strong re-election showings over his Progressive Conservative rivals in both 2006 and 2009.

  • 2009: Liberal Leo Glavine re-elected with 4,996 votes, nearly three times more than his closest rival, Progressive Conservative Chris Palmer.
  • 2006: Leo Glavine re-elected by more than 1,100 votes.
  • 2003: Leo Glavine gets 37 per cent of the vote, but is in a close contest. He defeats Progressive Conservative incumbent Jon Carey by just 116 votes, while Greg Hubbert of the NDP comes in a strong third.
  • 1999: Jon Carey receives 4,033 votes to defeat Liberal Don Clarke by more than 1,600 votes. New Democrat Jacquie DeMestral is third.
  • 1998: Progressive Conservative George Moody is re-elected in a landslide, taking almost 3,400 more votes than his nearest rival, Liberal Baden Thurber.
  • 1993: George Moody is re-elected by 1,717 votes over Baden Thurber.
