GPR Liberals rush candidate nomination
supporters in the Glengarry-Prescott-Russell riding will hot-foot it to
Saint-Isidore this Friday night to decide who will represent their party
now in the June provincial election.

So far the
only confirmed candidate for the nomination is Pierre Leroux (see
photo), the current mayor of Russell Township. Leroux tossed his
election hat into the provincial political ring after
incumbent MPP Grant Crack asked him to consider the idea.
to confirm a new Liberal candidate for the riding resulted from Crack’s
announcement last week that he will not seek reelection. His decision
comes two months after the January riding association
meeting which reconfirmed him as a candidate and less than two months
before the June 7 provincial election.
Liberal Riding Association candidate confirmation meeting is April 13, 7
p.m., at the Saint- Isidore Recreation Complex. At present there is no
word from the association of any other possible
candidates other than Leroux.
