Your MLA for Richmond East

Welcome to Richmond East.

I feel privileged to represent such a wonderful riding, chock full of people who love the land and produce some of the finest crops grown anywhere. The people of Richmond East possess enormous pioneering spirit and will continue to build welcoming neighbourhoods where everyone can experience a sense of belonging. It is about who comes after us and for me it is about the babies. Let’s take care of each other in this Lunar New Year of the Horse.
