Huron-Bruce Liberal candidate Allan Thompson opened a campaign office in Goderich on June 8, ramping up his campaign to become the Huron-Bruce MP in the Oct. 21 federal election. Thompson is the first Huron-Bruce candidate to set up a campaign office. The office at 61 Hamilton St. is just off the square in downtown Goderich and will be a hub for campaign volunteers in the weeks and months ahead.
Thompson is proud of the Liberal government’s record but also focused on being the strongest possible representative for Huron-Bruce, by getting out into the community to listen to people’s concerns, to put Huron-Bruce first and to get things done for the local community. His focus is on creating opportunity and rural economic development. The needs of seniors, access to healthcare and the challenges posed by mental health issues in rural communities are also major concerns.
Thompson says his pledge is to work hard, to restore common decency to politics and to honour our rural traditions of sharing and caring.
