THUNDER BAY – Maureen Comuzzi-Stehmann the niece of long time Member of Parliament Joe Comuzzi announced today that she will seek the Conservative nomination for Thunder Bay Rainy River Riding.
“Our family has been part of the fabric of the Thunder Bay region for generations. My grandfather founded Lakehead Motors. My father George and now my brother Michael have continued the tradition of our family run business.
My uncle Joe Comuzzi understood that you took the issues of your neighbours to Ottawa. That your responsibility as a representative was to build a better community for the people who elected you and that to serve the people of your riding was an honour, and a responsibility not to be taken lightly.
We need representation that will build our community and not representation that is solely aimed at playing party politics at the expense of our families’ futures. Now, on the practical side, my immediate focus is getting my nomination papers filed and getting 50 signatures from members of the riding association. I am expecting a nomination near the end of August.”
Greg Rickford states, “Maureen certainly brings tremendous profile to the candidacy and has a strong reputation as an individual and as part of a family that has contributed so much to the Thunder Bay community. I’m delighted to see so much enthusiasm around seeking the Conservative candidacy in both Thunder Bay ridings. It is clear that folks in Thunder Bay are tired of the fourth party martyrdom politics the NDP are offering them.”
