Brockville - Sep. 7, 2011 - Leeds-Grenville Progressive Conservative Candidate Steve Clark launched his re-election bid Tuesday, September 6 with a rally and official opening of his campaign headquarters in Brockville.
Clark, who was elected in the March 2010 byelection, said he’s worked hard to be a vocal proponent for Leeds-Grenville both at Queen’s Park and here in the riding.
“But we’ve got lots of work left to do,” said Clark, who was introduced by Leeds-Grenville MP Gord Brown and Senator Bob Runciman. “That’s why I’m looking forward to spending the next 30 days talking to the people of Leeds-Grenville about why I believe that the future is very bright for this riding and its residents.”
Speaking on the eve of the official start of the provincial campaign, Clark said that bright future begins with the election of an Ontario PC government led by Tim Hudak on October 6.
“Only our party, with our plan outlined in changebook, is truly committed to delivering much-needed relief for Ontario families after eight years of Dalton McGuinty’s tax hikes, expensive energy experiments, wasteful spending and secret deals,” stressed Clark.
While Dalton McGuinty will raise your taxes if given the chance, Clark said a PC government will bring change to:
Put more money in the pockets of hard-working Ontario families.
Guarantee the services you need, like health and education
Clean up government and eliminate the waste fraud and secret deals that have become the trademark of the McGuinty government.
Clark also criticized the Liberal plan to pay companies $10,000 to hire foreign workers.
“If you’re an unemployed worker in Ontario, now you know where you stand: Dalton McGuinty is going to pay employers to hire anyone but you,” said Clark. “Ontarians need not apply.”
