And so it begins

Ontario goes to the polls in 95 days. This past weekend was, in many ways, the first full weekend of the spring provincial election.Why? Because, as of Thursday night, all the main parties have nominated candidates in our riding, Kingston and The Islands.

Our local campaign kicked things off by bringing together volunteers who delivered our introductory postcard to thousands of homes. Maybe you found one at your door?

On the postcard, I outlined our Green vision for doing politics differently:

“I am running to show that politicians can be honest. That government can help people, small business and the planet. And that we can do these things together.”

We have been sending this message across social media, at events, fundraisers and through our policy work – developing a platform in our riding for our riding – since I was nominated again in October 2017. But Saturday was the first day that, likely, hundreds of people read about how we want to earn your vote at the ballot box on June 7 (or at the advanced polls).

And we’re just getting started!

As our momentum builds, reaching thousands, then tens of thousands of residents, I would love to connect with you. I’d like to hear about the issues that concern you and the hopes you have for Kingston and The Islands and the province.

Please feel free to give me a call (613-483-2811), send me an email (robertkiley@gpo.ca) or a message on social media.

Thank you to everyone who came out for Saturday’s literature drop, especially our new volunteers and our growing, talented team.

Join us for our next Super Saturday, March 17 @ 1:30 p.m. (136 Chatham Street). And if you need an excuse to wear green, it is St. Patrick’s Day after all. Stay tuned for more details or touch base with our campaign manager, steveward@gpo.ca and 613-329-7954.

I hope to see you soon.
