Ontario’s New Democratic Party has selected a date for nominating a candidate to run in the Thunder Bay - Atikokan riding.
The two people vying to run for the NDP are the same candidates who stepped forwards in 2011 -- Madge Richardson, the former mayor of Schreiber, and Mary Kozorys, who works in MP John Rafferty’s constituency office.
The first meeting for voting party members will be held on Feb. 8 at the Pioneer Centre in Atikokan. The second meeting will be held on Feb. 9.
The exact location of the Thunder Bay meeting is unknown at this time, however, it is believed that party leader Andrea Horwath will attend.
Kozorys won the nomination over Richardson in 2011, and then narrowly lost in the provincial election to Liberal MPP Bill Mauro, who was also the riding’s incumbent during that election.
