The Glengarry News - - News - - News Staff

Guy Lau­zon has en­dorsed Eric Dun­can as the next Con­ser­va­tive can­di­date for the fed­eral rid­ing of Stor­mont-Dun­das-South Glen­garry.

“Hav­ing served our com­mu­nity for 15 years and be­ing through six elec­tion cam­paigns, I know what it takes to be a Mem­ber of Par­lia­ment,” said Mr. Lau­zon in a Feb. 12 press re­lease. Eric Dun­can has what it takes to be suc­cess­ful and he has the full sup­port of [wife] Frances and my­self in his bid to be­come our next Mem­ber of Par­lia­ment.”

Although Mr. Lau­zon had con­sid­ered stay­ing neu­tral in the nom­i­na­tion con­test, he changed his mind af­ter be­ing “over­whelmed” with the pos­i­tive re­ac­tion Mr. Dun­can has re­ceived through­out the rid­ing.

“Eric is smart, kind, com­pas­sion­ate, hard­work­ing, and is ex­actly the type of can­di­date An­drew Scheer and our Con­ser­va­tive Party need for a bright fu­ture,” he said. “Whether it has been as one of the youngest Coun­cil­lors, May­ors, or War­dens in Cana­dian his­tory, or as my lead staff mem­ber and cam­paign man­ager for nine years, I know first-hand that Eric is ex­pe­ri­enced, en­er­getic and ready on Day 1 to make a dif­fer­ence.”

Mr. Lau­zon served as Mr. Lau­zon’s Ex­ec­u­tive As­sis­tant for nine years. Mr. Dun­can also served as Mayor of North Dun­das and War­den of SD&G.

Mr. Dun­can re­sponded to the en­dorse­ment: “It means a lot to have Guy and Frances’ sup­port dur­ing the nom­i­na­tion process. They have been won­der­ful role models and men­tors to look up to, and their pub­lic sup­port brings even more mo­men­tum as we con­tinue to work hard for ev­ery vote. I am hum­bled and over­whelmed by the pos­i­tive sup­port we’ve re­ceived in the rid­ing.”
