PC Leadership Forums kick off in Summerside on September 12th
Summerside – The first of four leadership forums with the two candidates for the leadership of
the Prince Edward Island Progressive Conservative party is taking place in Summerside on Tuesday, September 12th.
“Our leadership candidates have been busy all summer engaging Islanders in traditional and non-traditional ways. They’ve been listening, talking about the need for change and their visions for a better Prince Edward Island. Our leadership forums will let Islanders hear directly from Brad and James about the issues that matter to Islanders,” said Margaret Anne Walsh, President of the Prince Edward Island Progressive Conservative party.
The first leadership forum will be held at Credit Union Place in Summerside on Tuesday, September 12th beginning at 7:00 p.m. The forum will also be streamed online through the PEI PC Party Facebook page. Additional leadership forums will be held across Prince Edward Island over the next month in Bloomfield, Charlottetown and Brudenell.
Walsh noted that the leadership forums are open to the public and that the public will have an opportunity to ask questions of the two leadership candidates, Rustico-Emerald MLA Brad Trivers and Stratford-Kinlock MLA James Aylward. The public will also have an opportunity to submit questions online.
“We want our leadership process to be open, inclusive and engaging. That’s why we’re having early voting across the Island and by mail-in ballot over an extended time period. Our leadership forums will be another step in that engagement with Islanders, “ said Walsh.
