Paula Peroni, president of the Canadian Catholic School Trustees' Association and past president of the Ontario Catholic School Trustees' Association, will represent the Ontario Progressive Conservative party in the upcoming provincial election.
The election is scheduled for Oct. 6.
Perioni and her family are life-long residents of Nickel Belt, according to a press release issued by the provincial PC party. She was first elected as a Catholic school trustee for the Sudbury Catholic Board in 1997.
“Northern families are paying more and getting less,” Peroni said. “They deserve a government that shares their priorities, will provide them with relief and end the McGuinty waste.”
Tim Hudak, Ontario PC leader, welcomed Peroni as the candidate following the Jan. 20 nomination meeting.
“While the McGuinty Liberals have grown increasingly out of touch, the hard-working families in Nickel Belt can count on Paula to fight for their priorities and protect their pocketbooks,” Hudak stated.
