Sudbury MPP Rick Bartolucci is throwing his support behind Sandra Pupatello in her bid to become the next leader of the Ontario Liberal Party.
Pupatello shares the views of Sudbury MPP in serving the interests of Sudbury and Northern Ontario, Bartolucci said in a news release. She is focused on job creation and economic growth in the north.
“Sandra’s Northern vision will help move the entire province forward and is the best choice for Northerners,” said Bartolucci. “I’ve known Sandra for a number of years. I have witnessed her dedication and hard work on behalf of all Ontarians, and I’m confident she will be the kind of leader and Premier that all Ontarians can be proud of.”
Pupatello’s Northern Plan will build on the strong foundation our government has established over the past nine years while offering tailor-made policies for the economy, health care, education, issues concerning our youth, and Aboriginal communities in Northern Ontario.
The plan will deliver rewarding employment, while supporting safe and healthy communities through continued access to the kind of high-quality health care and education Ontarians have come to expect.
“Sandra will make a great leader and I look forward to working with her to develop a strong plan to harness the North’s immense potential and create long-term prosperity,” said Bartolucci.
