Skelly won’t rule out pro­vin­cial run

The Hamilton Spectator - - LOCAL - HAMIL­TON COM­MU­NITY NEWS

Ward 7 Coun. Donna Skelly is not rul­ing out a run for the On­tario Pro­gres­sive Con­ser­va­tive Party nom­i­na­tion in the rid­ing of Flam­bor­ough-Glan­brook.

“I am not go­ing to close any doors at this point,” Skelly said via email. “Right now my fo­cus is work­ing for my con­stituents as a city coun­cil­lor.”

Two oth­ers seek­ing the nom­i­na­tion, Nick Lauw­ers and Dan Sadler, were re­cently told by party of­fi­cials that On­tario PC Leader Pa­trick Brown would not sign ei­ther of their nom­i­na­tion pa­pers if ei­ther wins the con­test. Lauw­ers con­firmed in an email state­ment that the party will not hold a nom­i­na­tion meet­ing “but rather an ap­point­ment.”

In May, Al­bert Mar­shall dropped out of the race for the nom­i­na­tion af­ter be­ing told the party was look­ing at ap­point­ing a can­di­date.

Last month, Brown and Skelly par­tic­i­pated in a round­table dis­cus­sion in Hamil­ton. Me­dia was not in­vited to the event, but Brown tweeted about the event, thank­ing Skelly for par­tic­i­pat­ing.

The pro­vin­cial Lib­er­als will be nom­i­nat­ing Flam­bor­ough Coun. Judi Par­tridge as its can­di­date for the Flam­bor­ough-Glan­brook rid­ing Aug. 14 at Dun­das Town Hall.
