The Guelph New Democratic Party Electoral District Association (EDA) is pleased to welcome its new president for 2022, Rosalind (Roz) Gunn.
Rosalind was nominated for this position and subsequently elected at the EDA’s Annual General Meeting in January.
Gunn is a lifelong activist and advocate for social justice. Her vision for the Guelph NDP is one of inclusion and solidarity with labour, environmental, disability, and feminist causes across the region. She brings with her to the role a number of years’ experience in provincial, federal, and municipal election campaigns, as well as experience with grassroots activism related to raising the minimum wage and social assistance rates, workers’ rights, gender-based violence, child care, and climate action.
“The commitment to justice shared among the past and current Executive is incredibly inspiring to be a part of,” said Gunn.
“I look forward to continuing to build on the great work done by past president, Jordan Lemcke, and the 2021 Executive. In particular, I’m thrilled to have the honour of being in this role as we look ahead to what will surely be a great campaign led by our soon-to-be candidate, James Parr, who will be officially acclaimed as our candidate on March 14.”
Past President Jordan Lemke will continue his work with the EDA as Vice-President, joined by a number of seasoned veterans on the executive as well as many new faces.
