South Dundas – Del Jones announced today that he intends to seek the provincial Liberal nomination for Stormont-Dundas-South Glengarry.
“This is a critical time in the history of our province and I believe that I can make a difference”, he said. “I have the experience, skills and ability to get things done that will ensure my success as a representative of SDSG. And most importantly, I am driven to do what’s right, and what’s fair.”
Mr. Jones has a broad range of experience. He is a professional accountant with over twenty years of management experience with some of Canada’s most successful corporations. He is now in his ninth year of a second career as a secondary school teacher with the Upper Canada District School Board. He has also served a four year term as a South Dundas municipal councilor and performed the duties of Treasurer for the Winchester District Memorial Hospital.
“I am a quick study”, said Mr. Jones. “Whether it is understanding the intricacies of the dairy industry, or municipal taxation, I can grasp the issues and drill down to find common sense solutions to difficult problems”, he said. “I think I have been preparing for this challenge all of my life. I want to find creative solutions to the serious problems we face and ensure Ontario fully recovers from the devastation brought on by the 2008 financial crisis. And, I will work tirelessly to return high-paying jobs to Cornwall and SDSG.”
Del has been married to his wife Karen for 32 years. They have a daughter, Michelle, a registered nurse who is currently completing a Masters of Health Science (Bioethics) at the University of Toronto. Their son, David, is also studying at the University of Toronto pursuing a Masters of Divinity.
