Two-time Green Party candidate and former Orangeville town councillor Rob Strang wants to share his experience to help other Green candidates get elected. Since 1999, Rob has worked with the party “to get Ontario onto the road to sustainability for my daughters and subsequent generations.”
As the Dufferin-Caledon candidate in the 2007 provincial election Rob earned 16% of the popular vote, third highest in the province. With years of experience in business, on community committees and municipal council, Rob would be an asset to the GPO executive and aid in communicating the GPO’s position to the public.
“My job has taken me all over Ontario from forest product mills in Kenora, Fort Frances and Englehart, to mines, pits and quarries in Timmins, Manitoulin, and Dundas, to industrial sites in Cornwall, Toronto and Windsor, as well as First Nations communities from Six Nations to Christian Island. I have listened to people from all walks of life and I understand what makes our economy tick. I would like to share my experience and perspective and do what I can to help my fellow candidates.”
Since Dec. 2007 he has written more than eighty columns “On Politics” for The Orangeville Banner newspaper.
