BRIGHTON — The Green Party of Ontario is proud to announce that Lisa Francis has been nominated as its candidate for Northumberland—Peterborough South ahead of the 2022 provincial election.
Francis is a community volunteer and outdoor and exercise enthusiast. She has worked in the post-secondary education sector for the past 10 years.
“I’m running for the Ontario Greens to help support locally owned businesses to thrive through sustainable business practices that support our communities, our economy, and the environment,” Francis said.
“Lisa is a champion for local small businesses and an active community volunteer, ” Ontario Greens Leader Mike Schreiner said. “She knows the needs of her neighbours and will help her riding become more prosperous, sustainable and green.”
Along with supporting small businesses, Francis believes that protecting, enhancing, and increasing access to greenspace, and encouraging non-traditional voters to be part of the conversation is the way forward for a stronger, more sustainable Ontario.
“I’m excited to encourage people to vote, especially the younger generation and underrepresented groups, whose voices need to be heard,” Francis said. “In order to successfully implement policy that works for everyone, we need to consult and engage them in the conversation.”
Francis grew up in the Quinte area and currently lives in Brighton.
