Bala resident Holly Thompson is seeking the Conservative Party of Canada’s nomination in Parry Sound-Muskoka for the upcoming federal election, according to an announcement on April 24.
Thompson spent much of her life in Bala, but her career as a chartered accountant took her away from the region for a period. She’s now returning with hopes of winning the bid for the riding’s conservative nomination in the upcoming election. She is a lifelong conservative and has worked on campaigns and with conservative organizations across Ontario. Thompson’s priorities for Parry Sound-Muskoka are reducing taxes for individuals and small businesses, revitalizing the riding while maintaining resources and stopping the carbon tax, according to a statement from her website.
“I’m running because many of the fundamental concerns facing Canadians are being mishandled or ignored by the Trudeau Liberals, and I know I have a unique blend of experience and values to to champion change and bring new energy on behalf of the people of Parry Sound-Muskoka and all Canadians,” Thompson said. “My roots in the riding go back five generations, and I am thrilled with the opportunity to serve the community of friends and neighbours and to be their voice in Ottawa.”
Thompson said that she and her husband Mike look forward to meeting more Parry Sound-Muskoka residents and hearing directly about what matters to them.
“We are already engaged in conversations across the riding and are excited by the enthusiastic response,” she said. “If elected, I will make sure that their concerns and values are represented in Parliament and work hard to bring responsible governance back to Ottawa.”
The Conservative Party has not announced a date for the nomination meeting, but it is expected in the coming weeks.
