NDP Leader To Fight For A Better Deal For District 13
Earlier today, Michelle Neill, Leader of the Island New Democrats announced, alongside supporters, her plans that she will run for the NDP nomination in District 13, Charlottetown-Brighton.
“There are real problems facing everyday Islanders. They have the King government who continuously lets them down and quite frankly, Islanders are getting a raw deal from this government and governments of the past. This is wrong and it must stop,” says Neill. “Whether it’s the health care, cost of living, housing, or the climate change crisis, it’s clear the King government is not up to the task to simply help people.”
“All Islanders deserve a better deal from their government and from their politicians, so I will say with confidence that every Island New Democrat elected in the next election will fight for that better deal. One that will focus on fixing the broken health care system, making life more affordable, and tackling our housing and climate crisis,” says Neill. “The ideas that New Democrats will bring to the people of this province will help everyday families build a better life here at home.”
“I have decided to put my name forward as the NDP candidate for District 13- Charlottetown-Brighton because at my core, I believe politics is about people and the people of District 13 deserve someone who will fight for the issues that they care about,” says Neill.
Michelle Neill has a longtime connection to District 13 through her volunteer work for over 30 years with Skate PEI, Charlottetown Figure Skating Club, other hockey, soccer, and baseball organizations. Michelle also brings 25 years of experience as a federal civil servant, now working with the Public Service Alliance of Canada (PSAC). She’s a constant fighter for Islander workers in their workplace.
“When I was growing up, my dad would say to me, if I ever commented that something I heard or saw was unfair, ‘There’s no point in complaining, unless you are prepared to step up and get involved to make things better.’ I took that line to heart throughout my life and became a life-long volunteer that included work in and around District 13 to try to make things better and help Islanders improve their lives.
