DUNDAS—This evening, Hamilton City Councillor Judi Partridge was nominated as the Ontario Liberal Party candidate for new riding of Flamborough—Glanbrook, alongside current local MPP Ted McMeekin, who will run in the redistributed riding of Hamilton West—Ancaster—Dundas, and Premier Kathleen Wynne.
For seven years, Partridge served as councillor for Hamilton’s Ward 15 (Flamborough), and has been a tireless champion for community economic growth. Prior to entering the political ring, Partridge held senior management positions in government affairs, corporate affairs and media relations.
In accepting the nomination, Partridge contrasted her positive vision to bring economic development and jobs to our growing communities with the recent Conservative nomination controversies across Ontario, including in Hamilton-area ridings.
She also explained why she has chosen to run as an MPP as a Liberal, saying, "Premier Kathleen Wynne and the Ontario Liberal government have made significant investments in our communities, especially in our schools, hospitals, roads and other vital public services. These investments have played a crucial role in helping our region grow and prosper. I want to ensure we continue to make investments in people, infrastructure and our farm enterprises, to ensure our province and this region continues its strong momentum," she said.
Partridge is a graduate of McMaster Degroote School of Business’ United Way Governance program, and York University Shulich Executive School of Business Municipal Governance program. Partridge resides with her husband, Jeff, and two sons Justin and Jordan in Carlisle. Jeff serves as President of the Carlisle Optimist Club.
