Jesseca Perry hails from the Town of Beeton, Ontario, a small town in southern Simcoe County. She currently lives in Barrie, ON with her husband, their young children, and their energetic dog. She has spent the last six years working in the civil litigation industry as a Legal Secretary. Jesseca is keen on living in a rural area and appreciates the need to protect the natural resources and heritage that surround her community.
In 2014, Jesseca ran as our Provincial Candidate in the riding of Simcoe-Grey. She has continued to sit as Federal and Provincial Communications Chair within the riding’s executive committee. Jesseca is passionate about encouraging young voters to become actively engaged in politics. Previously, she has held several different council member positions with the Young Greens of Canada and strongly believes the organization plays a key role in engaging our youth demographic.
Jesseca originally became involved with the Green Party because she wanted to engage in politics but could not find a political party with a demographic that was representing youth issues. Jesseca hopes being a member of the Green Party will allow her to assist in developing policies that will focus awareness on the need to create sustainable lifestyles and ultimately a better future for her family, community and the planet.
