Hello Fellow Activists!

With the federal election just around the corner, NDP candidates in our community are in for a fight to the end.  As chair as the Political Action Committee, I'm reaching out to any and all members who can donate some time to help support Beth Mairs and the federal NDP in Sudbury.  I for one am tired of politicians who only show up for cheque presentations and ribbon cuttings.  Beth is ready to put workers first.
