[HAMILTON] – Today, well-known community advocate and Hamilton city councillor Judi Partridge announced she will be acclaimed as the Ontario Liberal candidate for the new riding of Flamborough-Glanbrook in the 42nd Ontario general election.
“Premier Kathleen Wynne and the Ontario Liberal government have made significant investments in our communities, especially in our schools, hospitals, roads and other vital public services,” said Partridge. “These investments have played a crucial role in helping our region grow and prosper. I want to ensure we continue to make investments in people, infrastructure and our farm enterprises, to ensure our province and this region continues its strong momentum.”
Partridge has served Ward 15 (Flamborough) - an urban and rural region - as councillor for seven years, and has been a tireless champion for community economic growth and protecting our rural way of life. Prior to entering the political ring, Partridge held senior management positions in government affairs, corporate affairs and media relations.
She is a graduate of McMaster Degroote School of Business’ United Way Governance program, and York University Shulich Executive School of Business Municipal Governance program.
“I want to use my municipal government experience and professional knowledge, along with my years of involvement as a volunteer in the community, to help families, individuals and businesses realize their full potential,” she said. “I look forward to campaigning on a positive vision to bring economic development and jobs to our growing communities in Flamborough-Glanbrook.”
The new riding of Flamborough-Glanbrook was created after Elections Canada conducted riding redistribution in 2014. Those boundaries were adopted by Ontario for the 2018 election.
Partridge said her hands on experience representing both rural and urban areas on Hamilton council give her a unique perspective on the issues and concerns of residents from Upper Stoney Creek to Binbrook to Carlisle.
“This is a large riding that includes farms, agribusiness, small and large businesses, historic rural communities and larger urban areas,” she said. “I have the energy and commitment to serve everyone across the great riding, and I hope to be able to earn their trust in the 2018 election.”
Partridge resides with her husband, Jeff, and two sons Justin and Jordan in Carlisle. Jeff serves as President of the Carlisle Optimist Club.
The Flamborough-Glanbrook Provincial Liberal Association will acclaim Judi Partridge at a nomination meeting on August 14.
