An incredible time on the Ontario NDP float at WorldPride 2014 on Sunday! Awesome to see so much positivity for the NDP! We have been leading the charge for LGBT rights in Ontario and nation wide for decades. That is something we should all be proud to celebrate!
Thank you! What an amazing journey!
Over the past five weeks, we got the NDP message of prosperity out to the people. We spoke with thousands of everyday citizens at the door, on the street, at the mall and in the coffee shop. We broadcast our hopes for the first time on radio and television. We attracted record support of volunteers, planted hundreds of signs, and garnered significant media attention.
We finished the night with one of the best results the Barrie NDP have shown in years. That is something we should all be proud of!
Thank you to everyone who helped and joined the campaign. I want to thank my Campaign Manger, Ellen White. Thank you for showing up right when you were needed and for being so amazing and skilled at… everything. To my best friend, Mark Cameron: I wouldn’t have taken this step without your push. And to the love of my life, my husband Tab Varney. We’ve always been there for each other and none of this would have been possible without your love and support.
To the amazing campaign office team. Serena, Christopher, Paul & Mary Lou with your 100 years of combined campaign knowledge, Myrna, John, Darcy & Marilyn, Kelly, Don, and everyone who showed up day after day in the office and who hit the streets with literature and a positive message.
So, what’s next? We keep going! The NDP are the doers. We’re the ones who stand up for change in our community. We will keep raising the profile of the NDP in Barrie. We will continue to support community groups and build our support base. Our work is important and there is no way to stop the power of the people.
I am so proud to have been selected as the Barrie NDP candidate and will remember the last five weeks for the rest of my life. Thanks to everyone who voted for change that makes sense.
