Mil­len­nial gets PC nod in HWAD

The Hamilton Spectator - - LOCAL -

A 25-year-old will carry the Pro­gres­sive Con­ser­va­tive ban­ner in Hamil­ton West-An­caster-Dun­das for the 2018 pro­vin­cial elec­tion.

Ben Le­vitt won the nom­i­na­tion at the An­caster High School Sun­day night, de­feat­ing Jeff Peller, Job­son Ea­sow and Vikram Singh.

Leav­itt, who worked for MP David Sweet, fol­lows a youth trend in the area for the PCs. Sam Ooster­hoff was 19 when he won the Ni­a­gara West-Glan­brook nom­i­na­tion and sub­se­quently the by­elec­tion to re­place for­mer leader Tim Hu­dak. Nick Lauw­ers, 32, is seek­ing the PC nom­i­na­tion for Flam­bor­ough-Glan­brook. The HWAD meeting lasted more than six hours and be­came rau­cous at times. The On­tario PC party an­nounced there were more than 1,800 bal­lots cast.
