Saturday, May 27, 2017

Toronto — The Ontario Liberal Party is pleased to announce that Laura Albanese will be seeking re-election as the Ontario Liberal candidate for the 42nd Ontario general election.

Albanese was first elected to the Ontario legislature in 2007 as MPP for York South--Weston. Before that, she worked in broadcast journalism spanning over two decades, providing Italian language programming at OMNI TV in various capacities. Albanese also serves as Minister of Citizenship and Immigration, as well as Minister Responsible for Multiculturalism.

“There has been no greater privilege than representing the needs of my residents at Queen’s Park,” said Albanese. “Ontario Liberals led by our Premier Kathleen Wynne are the only team that can deliver a plan that positions all Ontarians--regardless of race, background, ethnicity, or religion--to succeed.”

Albanese was joined by members of the York South--Weston community and beyond at this afternoon’s nomination meeting.

“Whether you live in Weston or Greenhills, Rustic or Stockyards, we know that we have a proven community champion in Laura Albanese.” said Asquith Allen, Riding President. "I know she will continue to represent our community with pride and integrity, and advocate for our concerns at Queen’s Park once she is re-elected.”

Albanese will formally celebrate 10 years of service this fall.
