Sudbury MPP made his inaugural speech in Queen's Park Tuesday

Joe Cimino, Sudbury's new MPP, promised to keep the majority Liberal government accountable in his inaugural speech at Queen's Park Tuesday afternoon.

“As MPP, I will work hard to make this government accountable and to make sure it delivers on the priorities of Sudbury families including job creation, making life more affordable, and ensuring that our seniors get the home care they need when they need it,” Cimino said. “Sudbury needs investment in frontline health care for more doctors and nurse practitioners and to finally get the PET scanner the community has been calling and working for.”

Cimino, who was appointed the NDP's transportation critic, said he plans to focus on improving road conditions in Sudbury and across the province.

“Sudbury needs its fair share of infrastructure funds to improve our roads,” he said. “Those potholes need to be fixed, our roads need proper maintenance during the winter and Highway 69 and Maley Drive need to be completed. As Sudbury MPP and the NDP’s transportation critic, I will push this government to finally get the job done.”

He ended his speech by outlining Sudbury's priorities.

“We need to help seniors with timely home care.,” Cimino said. “We need to make sure young people don’t have to move away to find jobs. We can provide a bright future here in Sudbury by investing in job creation, investing in the Ring of Fire, and in our local horse racing industry to start. We need to provide a better future for our children and grandchildren.”
