“This is a very important election during a time of a global pandemic. A serious, bold strategy to grow our economy is the only way forward for our local businesses, and all who reside in Lennox & Addington. Each of us as voters has the right to know where the parties stand before we go to the polls,” states Business Manager Megan Sands.
All registered candidates have been invited. In the candidate’s letter invite, the NDCC strongly encouraged all candidates to look at the What It Takes to Grow formula that is in collaboration with the Canadian Chamber of Commerce. This formula for growth has three distinct phases: 1) Finishing the fight against COVID 2) Getting the fundamentals right 3) Creating 21st century opportunities
Those who wish to submit a question for the candidates can do so before 12 noon on Sept. 7. Submissions can be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org. Please note that with limited time that not all questions will be asked. -3
