SDSG – The deputy mayor of South Dundas is looking to carry the Liberal banner into the June provincial election.

Kirsten Gardner announced her intentions today saying there are “many neglected issues” in the riding, like health care, housing and education.

“It’s time for community leaders to come together for the greater good of our riding. We need to work together for the good of all,” she said in a prepared statement.

The former civil servant, who grew up in Long Sault and Ingleside and now lives in Morrisburg, is the first person to put their name forward for the Liberals.

She’s already been endorsed by former Liberal MPP Jim Brownell.
