Statement from Ontario PC Leader Patrick Brown on the nomination of Dave Smith

Published on September 15, 2017

“I congratulate Dave on his nomination as the Ontario PC candidate for Peterborough-Kawartha.

“Dave is a long-time conservative volunteer and community activist. As the father of three children in university and a manager at an education software company, Dave understands the importance of preparing students for the jobs of today and tomorrow.

“He is actively involved in the community as a member of the Kinsmen Club of Peterborough, and previously served on the City’s Community Investment and Grants advisory committee. Dave is also a driving force in the Peterborough hockey community, and was chosen as Sports Personality of the Year by the City of Peterborough in 2014.

“Dave loves Peterborough, and I know he will be a tireless fighter to make life more affordable for Peterborough-Kawartha families.

“After 14 years in power, life is harder with the Liberals. Ontario families are working harder, paying more, and getting less. It’s time for a change. Only the Ontario PC Party will put hardworking families first, and make sure they pay less and get ahead.

“In Peterborough-Kawartha and across the province, the Ontario PC Party will continue to work hard for a better future. I look forward to working with Dave as we share our message of change for the better.”
