District 16 - Debbie Hum 

Rockingham - Wentworth

Debbie Hum is a likable councillor and has a sort of 1970s-style good-government sensibility to her, which is not a bad thing at all, but I wish she'd be more of a presence on council. Mostly, she seems to get into tit-for-tat fights with Linda Mosher.

Still, she was stridently against the Chebucto Road project and joined with Sue Uteck in calling Peter Kelly out on the unnecessary (and probably illegal) secret meeting on the fast ferry.

Grade: C+ Debbie's Cell: 476-7212

Perhaps the most notable thing that Debbie Hum did in the past year to distinguish herself was vote against the municipal budget. Well, she also showed up to vote against the municipal budget. So I guess that’s two things she did. Hum said that citizens were tired of being overtaxed and not seeing much put back into their community. The flawed tax system is something many other councillors criticize, but Hum, to her credit, actually followed through.


A fine rural area councillor, Hum worries about transportation, car safety, and the trouble of getting to and from City Hall. However, Hum proposed the reasonable idea of creating HRM satellite offices for multiple councillors, as opposed to district 19 coucillor Brad Johns, who proposed…well, something more extreme.
