GLENGARRY-PRESCOTT-RUSSELL – On May 7, Stéphane Sarrazin launched his campaign in the provincial election being held in Ontario on June 2.

The Progressive Conservative (PC) candidate welcomes his supporters at his campaign headquarters, at 750 Principale Street in Casselman. Sarrazin has served as Mayor of Alfred and Plantagenet since 2018 and as warden of the United Counties of Prescott and Russell in 2021.

He described himself as someone who achieves results. He said the PC Party led by Doug Ford has the best plan to deliver further results for Ontario residents through building the post-pandemic economy with more jobs and better transportation.

“We have a plan to create new and better jobs, and to support existing ones,” he said. In his capacity as mayor, Sarrazin was involved in projects such as the new Prescott and Russell Residence and economic development initiatives to support local businesses and farmers.

He says his work is not done and he will continue to make local concerns a priority at the provincial level, “I look forward to continuing to work hard for the people of Glengarry-Prescott-Russell and, together, we will continue to put Ontario back on a solid path to recovery,” said Sarrazin in a press release.

Prior to his career in municipal politics, Stéphane started his own business in 1990 and was the president of Hydro 2000 Inc., overseeing electricity distribution in the villages of Alfred and Plantagenet.

“We are proud to have strong candidates like Stéphane as part of our PC team,” said Brian Patterson, president of the Ontario PC Party.

Sarrazin claims the PC government will increase its investment by $1 billion to be used for roads, wastewater facilities and clean drinking water. He believes this can be implemented over the next five years in Ontario
