Congrats to Danielle Takacs, new LPC candidate for Brantford-Brant

danielle-brantcandidate

I had the great privilege and honour to be in Brantford last evening for the nomination of my good friend Danielle Takacs; she is now the Liberal candidate for the riding of Brantford-Brant. My fellow blogger Jeff Jedras has also done a blogpost on Danielle which he listed all of her extensive accomplishments she has already done and still a part of, so I won’t go into that list – you may read them at your leisure over at his site. Rather, I’ll mention that it was an amazing night, with an overflow crowd of 100 – I’ll admit, we didn’t know what to expect for crowd size, but we had standing-room only there, and despite extra chairs brought in, they were still standing.

I can tell you that people left after the meeting very impressed with Danielle’s speech; a lot came wanting to get a measure of their new candidate, and I didn’t hear anyone say they were disappointed. I saw a few new Liberal membership application forms filled out, I saw a lot of donations being given in baskets, and I saw a lot of contact forms filled out asking to help volunteer at some point. The night definitely surpassed all expectations, even for Danielle, I think it’s fair to say.

By the way, the campaign for Danielle is starting today; she’s canvassing her neighbourhood in Brantford. There will be no lack of work from her, and as a friend I just want to say; Congrats Danielle, you deserve all the accolades you’re receiving. It gives me great pleasure to change my badge over at the right sidebar side from a nomination badge to the candidate picture the Liberal Party released above. (I’ll also mention that Danielle has a new campaign Facebook page – that just got put up as of this writing of this blog.. so its new.. but content will be added forthwith)

I’ve posted some photos of the event below; there were a lot of special guests on this night to support Danielle, including Jeff Jedras, fellow blogger and former OLP candidate, Nancy Leblanc, Cambridge MPP Kathryn McGarry, Hamilton-Centre LPC candidate Anne Tennier, Etobicoke-Centre nomination candidate George Takach, and Provincial Minister of Municipal Affairs Ted McMeekin (not pictured in these photos)

    Just so the people know…Danielle was not chosen by the Brant Liberals as their candidate in the normal nomination process. Her candidacy was done through other channels of the Liberal Party and not by the people.

    • Just so the people know.. Danielle was acclaimed after 8 months of no one else filing nomination papers or anyone else even bothering to ask for the nomination package. The LPC has acclaimed other candidates in similar circumstances when a period of time has passed and no one else has stepped forward. This was no different (other parties have done this too, for that matter)
