MP Johns setting bar high for other politicians

It is certainly refreshing to have a representative who seems to genuinely want to know what the voters care about between elections

Great story by John Harding in the Oct. 25 edition of The NEWS about MP Gord Johns’ first year in office.

It is certainly refreshing to have a representative who seems to genuinely want to know what the voters care about between elections.

I attended one of his town hall meetings and came away understanding the issues better and satisfied that I had a real opportunity for meaningful input.

He sets a high bar for other politicians in our community, in my opinion.
