Sarnia-Lambton now has a full slate of candidates for the Ontario Provincial election that will take place on June 7.
A day before the deadline for nominations, the local Liberal association officially nominated Neil Wereley, who is on an unpaid leave from his job as executive assistant to Deb Matthews, MPP for London North Centre.
About a dozen Liberal members were in attendance for the vote, although Wereley was the only one seeking the nomination.
He now joins incumbent Bob Bailey of the Progressive Conservatives; Kathy Alexander of the NDP; Kevin Smith of the Green Party; Andy Bruziewicz for the Trillium Party; and Fanina Kodre for the Century Party in seeking the role of MPP.
Although Wereley has never lived in the riding, he told one media outlet that he doesn’t see himself as a parachute candidate.
In addition to the door-to-door canvassing that all candidates are expected to do in the next few weeks, the Sarnia Lambton Chamber of Commerce is partnering with the Seaway Kiwanis Club in presenting an all-candidates lunch, Tuesday, May 29 at the Sarnia Golf & Curling Club.
Registration for the event (which costs $25 for Chamber members, $30 for non-members) can be done online by clicking HERE.
