Tuesday, Feb. 12th - The Conservative nomination process is underway in Stormont-Dundas-South Glengarry, and current Conservative Member of Parliament Guy Lauzon and his wife Frances have endorsed Eric Duncan as the next Conservative candidate in Stormont-Dundas-South Glengarry. Lauzon provided the following statement on his endorsement:
“Having served our community for 15 years and being through 6 election campaigns, I know what it takes to be a Member of Parliament. Eric Duncan has what it takes to be successful and he has the full support of Frances and myself in his bid to become our next Member of Parliament. We thought long and hard about staying neutral in the Conservative nomination contest, but we’ve been overwhelmed with the positive reaction and support that Eric has received from every corner of our riding. He truly deserves it. Eric is smart, kind, compassionate, hardworking, and is exactly the type of candidate Andrew Scheer and our Conservative Party need for a bright future. Whether it has been as one of the youngest Councillors, Mayors, or Wardens in Canadian history, or as my lead staff member and campaign manager for 9 years, I know first-hand that Eric is experienced, energetic and ready on Day 1 to make a difference.”
Lauzon and Duncan have enjoyed a close working relationship and friendship as Duncan served as Lauzon’s Executive Assistant for 9 years and while Duncan was Mayor of North Dundas and Warden of SD&G.
Duncan responded to the endorsement: “It means a lot to have Guy and Frances’ support during the nomination process. They have been wonderful role models and mentors to look up to, and their public support brings even more momentum as we continue to work hard for every vote. I am humbled and overwhelmed by the positive support we’ve received in the riding.”
