A Stratford city councilor is hoping to represent Perth-Wellington provincially.

Jo-Dee Burbach is running for the Ontario NDP in the riding and she says she would be an excellent voice for local voters with her party putting people before profits.

Burbach says she really cares about the residents in the area and she adds she understands what the issues locally are.

She says she sees affordability on every front as the major issue in the June 2nd election.

“Prices continue to rise, we do need relief, we see things like gas prices, food prices and especially housing all just skyrocketing.”

Also running in the June 2nd election are Ashley Fox for the Liberal Party, Matthew Rae for the PC Party, Bob Hosken for the New Blue Party, Laura Bisutti for the Green Party and Sandy MacGregor for the Ontario Party.
