Second candidate vies for Conservative nomination

Long-time Legislative Assistant to Larry Miller, Member of Parliament for BruceGrey-Owen Sound, and Chesley resident, Chad Richards, has announced that he will seek the Conservative Party of Canada’s nomination in the riding of Bruce-Grey-Owen Sound.

Richards was born and raised in Bruce-Grey-Owen Sound and has worked for the betterment of his community for his entire life.

For almost 7 years he has been serving as Larry Miller’s Legislative Assistant where he has successfully helped local residents, businesses, and organizations navigate issues pertaining to the federal government.

Richards holds two degrees from Carleton University. He graduated with distinction with an Honours Bachelor of Arts (Political Science and French). He then went on to receive a Masters degree from Carleton’s Masters of Political Management program.

“I take immense pride in where I come from and I am proud to have had the opportunity to serve our riding on Parliament Hill,” said Richards. “Working with our Member of Parliament has truly been an eye-opener to how things really work within our government. I have been proud to stand beside many residents of Bruce-Grey-Owen Sound through some major successes and am equally as proud to have stood behind constituents to find solutions as they faced some very tough issues.”

Richards hopes to bring an experienced, fresh, energetic, and enthusiastic voice to Ottawa on behalf the people of Bruce-Grey-Owen Sound. Through his work on behalf of residents and businesses in the riding, he has seen first-hand how the current government has neglected rural communities in Bruce and Grey counties and across Canada.

“I believe that my unique combination of education and practical experience will allow me to represent our riding in the best possible way,” said Richards. “My passion for this area combined with a deep understanding of how Ottawa works will ensure that when constituents come to me I will know not only what the issues on the ground are here in the riding but also how to solve them in Ottawa. It is my sincere hope that residents will allow me to continue serving Bruce-Grey-Owen Sound.”

Over the course of his campaign, Richards will be announcing a series of unique policy options and positions aimed to solve problems for all of those across Bruce-Grey-Owen Sound.
