Life-long Sault Ste. Marie resident, Sonny Spina, has joined the race to become the next candidate for the Conservative Party of Canada in the upcoming federal election.
“I know politics can be done differently” said Sonny. “We need elected officials that will lead by example. Sault Ste. Marie deserves strong passionate leadership in Ottawa, and it’s time we do something about it.”
Sonny’s three priorities are; lowering taxes, bringing urgently needed investments to Sault Ste. Marie, and working collaboratively with all levels of government, the business community and community stakeholders to help create a better economy and stable jobs, especially in the steel industry.
“My focus is and always will be on what’s good for Sault Ste Marie. I have a proven history of showing that by working together we can remove barriers and improve the quality of life for everyone.” “The reckless partisan ways of the Trudeau Liberals have let us down. I believe in this community and we all deserve better.”
“I have chosen to take an unpaid leave of absence from work and step forward because I will stand up for the community and people I believe in; the people of Sault Ste. Marie.”
Sonny was born and raised in Sault Ste. Marie and began a career as a police officer in 2002. Over the years he has dedicated his life in service to Sault Ste. Marie by leading many community organizations to incredible levels of success including;
