Aislinn Clancy poised to paint Kitchener Centre Green – again

November 1, 2023

KITCHENER — A provincial byelection has been called in Kitchener Centre for November 30. Since her nomination in May, Ontario Greens’ candidate Aislinn Clancy has been working tirelessly to be an independent voice for her community.

“I’ve spoken to tens of thousands of community members who are tired of empty promises from governments that don’t deliver. They’re ready for someone who’s going to put community concerns before party politics.

“I’m committed to being an independent voice who puts Kitchener Centre first, and to working tirelessly to make life better for the people who live here.”

While Doug Ford has left Kitchener residents without a voice at Queen’s Park for months, “our team has been busy building a campaign with momentum,” said Clancy.

“I’ve never seen a campaign as election-ready as Aislinn’s,” said Ontario Greens leader Mike Schreiner. “It shows how hard she will work for people in Kitchener as their MPP.

“Aislinn was the first candidate nominated. The first to open her campaign office. The first to knock on every single door in the riding. She’s been out there every day building a powerful grassroots movement to bring real change to benefit her community.

“She did that with people power, and it’s that same people power that she’ll bring to Queen’s Park as an independent champion for her community.

“Kitchener needs someone who will put people before party politics,” said Schreiner. “I know Aislinn is that person. Together, we’ll paint this riding Green all over again – just like Mike Morrice did in 2021.”

Clancy is a Kitchener City Councillor with deep roots in the community. She is Deputy Leader of the Ontario Greens.

Effective today, Clancy will take a leave of absence from her council seat for the duration of the campaign.
