Current London-Fanshawe MPP Teresa Armstrong has been nominated by the London-Fanshawe NDP riding association to run in the upcoming provincial general election, continuing the hard work she has done in the riding since first being elected in 2011.
“London-Fanshawe is my home,” said Armstrong. “I’m proud to represent this riding, and I look forward to the coming election, and working alongside Andrea Horwath and my NDP colleagues to offer Londoners and Ontarians a better future.”
Armstrong is a well-known community leader in London, with a long history of volunteering with different community organizations and causes. As NDP Critic for Home and Long-Term Care, and Seniors’ Affairs, she has been a champion for vulnerable Ontarians, working to improve the lives of seniors, retirees, and people living with long-term health challenges. In September 2016, a private member’s bill from Armstrong was passed, establishing October as Islamic Heritage Month in Ontario.
“I couldn’t be more proud to have Teresa on our team today, and moving toward the general election,” said Ontario NDP Leader Andrea Horwath. “Teresa is a fantastic advocate for her constituents, and a highly respected MPP here at Queen’s Park. She works hard every single day to build a better, fairer Ontario for everyone.”
“The Wynne Liberals are making it harder to live in Ontario and build a good life, especially for young people, and Patrick Brown’s PCs will only make things worse,” said Armstrong. “Ontario’s New Democrats believe in building a better province, where people have access to the education, healthcare, and good jobs they need and deserve. I’m proud to bring that message here to London-Fanshawe, and to help spread it across the province.”
