New Democrats nominate Matt McCarthy for Parry Sound-Muskoka

 – Sunday, New Democrats in the federal riding of Parry Sound-Muskoka came together to nominate Matt McCarthy as their candidate to take on Tony Clement in the next federal election.

“Matt has a sincerity in his dedication and humility in his desire to serve his community,” said NDP Leader Tom Mulcair. “He offers a clear alternative to Tony Clement and is an excellent addition to our team.”

A Certified Translator who works from his home in Bracebridge, McCarthy grew up visiting Quinn Lake, near Dunchurch, every year. For over a year he has served as the Treasurer to the Association of Translators and Interpreters of Ontario.

“This election will not be about Stephen Harper, and it will not be about Tony Clement,” said McCarthy. “This election will be about the solutions we bring to the table so the people of Parry Sound – Muskoka can help replace these tired Conservatives with an NDP government that will fight for the middle class and help us create jobs while still protecting our environment.”
