“I congratulate Mary on her nomination as the Ontario PC candidate for Kitchener Centre.
“Mary brings a wealth of experience to our modern, inclusive and pragmatic PC team. A long-time conservative activist with strong ties to the Coptic community, Mary has experience working within government as an assistant in the regional office for the Hon. Diane Finley.
"Her dedication to her community is reflected in her involvement in Zonta International, which empowers women, and her past service as Chair of the MS Society Kitchener Chapter and as Public Relations Chair of the Stanley Park Community Centre.
“After 14 years in power, life is harder with the Liberals. Ontario families are working harder, paying more, and getting less. Ontario deserves better. It’s time for a change. The Ontario PCs will make sure Ontario families who work hard pay less and get ahead.
“In Kitchener Centre and across the province, the Ontario PC Party will continue to work hard for a better future. I look forward to working with Mary as we share our positive message of change with Ontarians.”
