Aislinn Clancy nominated as Ontario Greens’ Kitchener Centre candidate
May 2, 2023
KITCHENER — Kitchener Centre Greens have named Aislinn Clancy as their candidate in the upcoming provincial by-election.
“I am delighted to be representing the Ontario Greens in the upcoming by-election,” said Clancy.
“As a city councillor, I have spent time speaking and listening to community members about the challenges we’re facing: issues like housing affordability, cost of living, loss of farmland, air and water pollution – issues that impact all of us.
“Those conversations have made it crystal-clear that Kitchener needs a caring, connected and climate-ready advocate at Queen’s Park now more than ever.”
Clancy is the current Kitchener City Councillor for Ward 10, as well as a committed climate activist, social worker and community volunteer. After becoming councillor, she knocked on every door in Ward 10 to ensure all 18,000 constituents knew that she was there to work for them.
Ontario Greens leader and MPP for Guelph Mike Schreiner joined Clancy on stage to celebrate her nomination.
“Aislinn is a compassionate leader, a committed community member, and has a bold vision for building a more caring, connected, and climate-ready Kitchener,” said Schreiner.
“I am so excited to work alongside her as we gear up to bring another Green voice to Queen’s Park. We’ve seen how much one Green MPP can accomplish – now imagine what we can do with two.”
