Nephew of late MP Gord Brown will continue his family’s legacy of public service.
GANANOQUE — Colin Brown, nephew of late MP Gord Brown, today announced his intention to seek the Conservative Party Nomination in the Riding of Leeds-Grenville-Thousand Islands and Rideau Lakes. Colin will work to represent his community as the Conservative Party Candidate in the upcoming byelection.
“I want to build on the legacy left by my uncle, who served this community for over 20 years,” said Brown. “I will be a strong voice for our community and work hard to earn your support.”
Colin was born and raised in this community and understands the challenges faced by local residents and business owners. He will utilize his extensive business and political experience to advance local issues at the federal level. This experience includes Colin’s recent work on the Ontario PC election campaign.
Colin’s priorities for the local community include: keeping taxes low and fostering a business friendly environment; investing in vital infrastructure for the region; and, continuing the work of his uncle in supporting Thalidomide survivors.
Colin is proud to have the support of Doug Ford.
“Colin has always demonstrated very strong leadership skills and an excellent work ethic,” said Doug Ford. “I am confident that he will be an effective voice for this community.”
Leeds-Grenville MPP Steve Clark says “Colin gained tremendous experience as part of a tour team that helped deliver a resounding victory for Doug Ford and the Ontario PCs on June 7th. Politics are part of the Brown family tradition and Colin’s intelligence, work ethic and hands-on experience in helping organize and deliver a winning campaign make him an impressive candidate.”
