Liberal candidate Andrew Olivier said Sudbury voters should direct their anger about the quality of the city's roads to NDP candidate and Ward 1 Coun. Joe Cimino.

Olivier said in a release the poor quality of Sudbury's roads are the NO. 1 complaint he's hearing from voters, but added roads are a municipal matter.

“I won’t ignore the roads issue just because it’s a city responsibility,” Olivier said. “I’m upset with the roads, too, and I wonder what happened to the tens of millions of dollars our Liberal government has given to Joe Cimino and city council for our local roads.”

Olivier said the provincial government has directed more than $50 million to Sudbury's roads, bridges and transit.

Olivier said the recent Liberal budget included millions for different local road improvements and $28 million for the Maley Drive extension in Sudbury.

He also questioned Cimino's record on council, and his motivations for running in the provincial election.

“With his dismal track record on council, one has to wonder what motivates Joe Cimino to want to become an MPP,” Olivier said in a release.

“What makes him think he can get things done as a back bencher in a third party when he couldn’t even do anything to improve our city roads while sitting at the decision table? What makes him think being in the party of ‘no’ would help Sudbury?”
