In April, Nicole Beatty and Jeff Kawzenuk entered a competition to be nominated as Liberal Candidate for the 2022 Provincial election. If nominated, and if she won against MPP David Piccini, Nicole would then not be running for Council in the 2022 Municipal Elections. However, Liberal Party members in the Riding (Northumberland Peterborough-South) voted for Jeff Kawzenuk with an announcement yesterday – June 5. Jeff retired in July 2020 from a 35 year career as teacher and principal in several Northumberland High Schools. Both Nicole and Jeff campaigned online (see links below) and it did not seem to impact Nicole’s Council work. With the announcement of the vote result, Nicole offers congratulations to Jeff on her Facebook page. She continues with:
I’m so proud of the campaign we ran. To be blessed with a volunteer team who gave their time and talent – there are not enough words to express my appreciation. To be overjoyed by the love and support of my community – I’m so very lucky. With a heart full of gratitude, thank you for believing in me! I will never stop working for positive change.
The Liberal Party Riding announcement of the selection concludes with:
“It’s time to move forward with an MPP who puts the unique interests of Northumberland—Peterborough South first,” said Kawzenuk. “During the recovery of COVID-19, there will be many decisions and changes to be made. We need a post-pandemic plan that builds the future for our community.”
In his campaign material, Jeff wanted to support: essential and front line workers, students and educators, health care, small business, eldercare and rural communities. See links below for more detail on the announcement, Jeff’s campaign, Nicole’s campaign and more.
The next 18 months looks to be busy politically. The Provincial election is scheduled for June 2022, the Municipal election is scheduled for October 2022 and if you believe what’s being said, a Federal election could be happening this summer or Fall.
