THUNDER BAY – POLITICS – Thunder Bay Atikokan Progressive Conservative riding association President Brandon Postuma announced today he will seek the PC nomination for The Thunder Bay Atikokan Riding.
“I am flying to Toronto in the morning to attend the PC leadership convention and felt that I wanted to announce my candidacy today to indicate my support for whomever the new leader is. I have declared my support publicly for Christine Elliot, but I will work with whoever becomes the new leader. This is all about defeating the Wynne Liberals and we cannot lose sight of that goal.”
Brandon is 31 years old married to Natalie and has three children Bentley, Aubrey, and baby Charlotte. Brandon runs the Kakabeka Depot which provides farm, garden, and veterinary supplies to local farmers. He was instrumental in attracting a pharmacy and clinic that serves Kakabeka and surrounding area. Brandon holds an Honors degree from Ottawa University and an undergraduate degree from Lakehead University.
“Natalie and I are raising our children on a small farm in Conmee Township. Farm life is teaching our children the hard work and great rewards through the raising of our horses, chickens, pigs, and a donkey Benji,” states Postuma.
Brandon is a member of the PC Party Agriculture Policy Development Board with MPP Toby Barrett, member of the economic development committee for Oliver-Paipoonge, was instrumental in the Kakabeka Village revitalization, The Kakabeka Depot, The Horse Hut, IDA Pharmacy and Clinic, The Eddy Restaurant and other community programs and events.
