Liberal, Libertarian contenders
Russell Township Mayor Pierre Leroux has been officially chosen as the Ontario Liberal Party candidate for Glengarry-Prescott-Russell in the upcoming provincial election.
Mr. Leroux won the nomination on Friday evening at a meeting in St-Isidore.
“I look forward to working with Premier Kathleen Wynne and everyone in this great riding to produce positive results for the betterment of our community and the people of Ontario,” Mr. Leroux said. He also took some time to thank current Liberal MPP Grant Crack, his pre-descessors Jean-Marc Lalonde and Jean Poirier and longtime Liberal MP Don Boudria “for the legacies they have left us all.”
Darcy Neal Donnelly has been chosen as the Libertarian candidate in Glengarry-Prescott-Russell for the June 7 provincial election.
Mr. Donnelly is a 57-year-old truck driver who works for Mike’s Waste in Vankleek Hill. He previously ran for the Libertarian party in federal and provincial elections in 2011 and 2014.
