Statement from Ontario PC Leader Patrick Brown on the nomination of Esther Pauls in Hamilton Mountain

“I congratulate Esther on her nomination as the Ontario PC candidate for Hamilton Mountain.

“Esther is a well-known community leader. She and her husband opened the first Runner’s Den, where they have helped many runners achieve more than they ever thought possible. Through the Runner’s Den, Esther hosts the Hamilton Road2Hope Marathon to raise funds for CityKidz & Joy and Hope of Haiti. She has also won a number of awards recognizing her for her outstanding community service. 

“In marathons, Esther is known as a tough competitor, and the families of Hamilton Mountain can count on her to be a fighter for their community at Queen's Park.

“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 make sure hardworking Ontario families pay less and get ahead. 

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