SDSG – A philanthropic businessman from St. Andrews West is one of two people seeking to replace MPP Jim McDonell at Queen’s Park.
Nolan Quinn announced his candidacy Friday (Dec. 17) for the Ontario PC nomination in Stormont-Dundas-South Glengarry.
The owner of Dairy Queen in Cornwall is born and raised in the city and is the youngest of five children.
He’s been involved in a number of charity organizations including the Children’s Treatment Center and the United Way of SD&G.
“I have always believed that community matters, and that giving back where we can is what makes our home one of the greatest places to live in Ontario. I have seen firsthand the caring nature of our community and what we can accomplish when we work together for the good of all. I want to bring that spirit to Queen’s Park in Toronto,” he said in a statement.
Quinn lives in South Stormont with his wife, Kimberly, and their three children: Norah, Nolan Jr. and Nevyn.
The other person seeking the nomination is South Stormont councilman and lawyer Andrew Guindon.
