We asked our four federal candidates what they will focus on in their election platforms. NDP candidate Margaret Andrade says we need to pull together to come up with great ideas. She says people in this riding are intelligent, hard working people who can put Leeds and Grenville on the map.

Andrade said she will focus on the lack of employment, better conditions for seniors and the need to brand us as a riding of excellence.

On October 19th, NDP candidate Margaret Andrade is up against the incumbent PC candidate Gord Brown, Liberal candidate Mary Jean McFall and Lorraine Rekmans of the Green Party.
