With an election now officially called for September 20, most news coverage will be focused on that event. Cobourg is in the Northumberland Peterborough South Riding and is currently represented by MP Philip Lawrence who is a member of the Conservative Party. He will be running for the Conservatives and other parties will be competing. Already, the Liberal Party has nominated Alison Lester as their Candidate, the People’s Party has nominated Nathan Lang but the NDP and Green Party have not yet nominated candidates. To keep everyone informed, Cobourg News Blog will be providing regular updates and there is also a factual non-partisan page – see links below. Blog Posts will report on events such as new nominations and any Cobourg/ Northumberland specific events.
It’s expected that the NDP and the Green Party will nominate Candidates – you can connect with the web pages and Social Media of their organizations via the special Cobourg News page in the link below. Or wait for an announcement via a blog post.
Anyone who knows me well, will know that I do have a political opinion but I will try hard to keep that out of reports on the election campaign.
