I'm endorsing Ted Hsu to be our Party's candidate because he is the ideal person to represent the Liberal Party and the people of Kingston & The Islands in the Ontario Legislature.
Ted's education and work experience give him the knowledge to identify the right solutions for the challenges facing Ontario. His scientific education and experience ensures that he will make evidence-based decisions on issues such as the COVID-19 pandemic and climate change. His experience as an investment banker in overseas markets and working with startup companies give him a tremendous understanding of our economy and international trade, which is an asset that will allow him to identify the right economic policies to position Ontario for the 21st Century.
More importantly, Ted is a person with strong ethical values and moral character. He is honest, transparent, trustworthy and a good listener. His leadership style in the Liberal Party and the community is one that brings people together and empowers people to fully utilize their talents and skills toward a common objective. My experience with Ted is someone who values everyone's thoughts and opinions, is humble and modest despite his extensive education and work experience, and most importantly, is one who unites rather than divides. In a world that is so divided, we need more people like Ted in public office!
And finally, Ted is the ideal candidate because he can hit the ground running. He knows how to campaign and win an election. His past experience as our Member of Parliament shows that he understands Kingston and the Islands and will represent it well in the Legislature, as he so ably did in the Parliament of Canada previously. Because he was not part of the previous Liberal government that was defeated in 2018, Ted has the ability to ensure that the Ontario Liberal Party is rebuilt the right way as it forms the next government of Ontario!
It's for these reasons that I wholeheartedly endorse Ted to be our candidate in the 2022 provincial election!
