St. John’s, NL (August 6, 2018) – Today, Progressive Conservative Leader Ches Crosbie is announcing his intention to run in the upcoming byelection in the district of Windsor Lake.

“I am proud to announce that I will be running as the Progressive Conservative candidate in the upcoming Windsor Lake byelection. I have already begun organizing my local campaign team, and am looking forward to continuing to meet with the people of the district and seek their support in the weeks ahead,” said Crosbie

“I am excited to bring forth a positive vision to the people of Windsor Lake, and to outline my plan to reverse the high-tax Liberal economic agenda, address rising energy costs, and restore public confidence in our democracy.”

The current MHA for Windsor Lake, Cathy Bennett, announced yesterday that she will be vacating the seat as of August 21, triggering this byelection.

“I would like to thank outgoing MHA Cathy Bennett for her service to the people of our province, including the residents of Windsor Lake. I wish her well as she returns to the private sector.” added Crosbie.

Crosbie believes that Premier Ball, given the fixed date of Bennett’s departure, should immediately set a date for this upcoming byelection.

“It is important to me that all residents of Newfoundland and Labrador are represented in our legislature as fully as possible,” said Crosbie

“That is why I am asking Premier Ball to not delay choosing a date for this election, and to ensure that this seat is not vacant for any longer than it needs to be. I am prepared for this byelection to occur at the earliest possible opportunity.”
