CAYUGA—Albert Marshall isn’t interested in being represented by political candidates who he feels don’t properly exemplify the community he was born and raised in.
“Marshalls have lived in and supported the community for four generations. My grandparents had a medical practice in Dunnville. My parents had both a medical practice and a law practice in Cayuga. Later my father was a judge,” said Marshall. “We were raised to work hard and to treat everyone with respect.”
When Diane Finley announced that she would not seek re-election at the completion of her current term in office, Leslyn Lewis of Toronto announced that she would be coming in to take over in the next election. This did not sit well with Marshall.
“I actually know the areas and the people. I know the difference between a field of soy beans and a field of wheat. If Leslyn loses she will never move to Haldimand Norfolk. If she wins she will move to Ottawa. Either way she will never know us,” continued Marshall. “Win or lose, I am going to be a part of this community until my last breath.”
