Bonnie Jean-Louis carries NDP banner for GPR
Bonnie Jean-Louis was confirmed Wednesday morning as the NDP candidate for Glengarry-Prescott-Russell.
Jean-Louis, a long-time community volunteer, declared in an email to the Tribune Express that she believes “in the power of politics to make local changes in my community.”
She cited health and family care issues as key planks in her campaign platform, including improved access to dental care and prescription medicine for both seniors and families, and affordable daycare service for working parents.
Jean-Louis also listed increased funding for public education at the district level as one of her priorities.
“Fix our public schools by funding schools properly,” she stated, listing smaller class sizes, better support for special needs students, and more teaching staff to provide more one-on-one attention to student learning.
