Cornwall - Jul. 28, 2011 - MPP Jim Brownell today officially launched the beginning of S-D-S-G Liberal Candidate Mark A. MacDonald’s Riding road trip. Speaking to Mark’s family and members of his Campaign Team, MPP Brownell offered words of encouragement and advice.
“Go get ‘em” Jim stated as he fittingly christened the tour the “FACE TO FACE” Riding road trip. “As far as I know, something like this has never been done before and it rivals Ed Lumley’s helicopter tour when he criss-crossed the riding years ago”, Brownell stated.
MPP Jim Brownell along with the Ontario Liberal Government have made massive investments in Stormont - Dundas - South - Glengarry and the “infrastructure landscape” has been forever changed.
MacDonald stated that “every part of the riding has been dramatically improved because of Jim’s hard work”, and that “Ontario is on the road to recovery and during these uncertain economic times it’s important that we stay focused and stay on track”, he went on to state.
Mark outlined the initial phase of the “Face to Face” tour which, after leaving Cornwall, will make initial stops in St. Andrews and Monkland followed by spending the early part of next week in the Morrisburg area.
Explaining that the Tories were fundamentally opposed to building new hospitals, arenas and health centres as a way of combating the global economic crisis, MacDonald told a group of family and friends that “I intend to follow in Jim’s footsteps and work hard to make sure that we protect what we have and continue to build on that progress and not allow deep cuts to the public system that we’ve come to enjoy”.
“Forward-Together”, MacDonald stated as he left his childhood home, bidding farewell to his mother, who was on hand to see him off.
