Here for Hamilton Centre
Andrea is the daughter of a unionized auto worker, proud to be born-and-raised in Hamilton. As a housing advocate, she saw it getting harder to build a good life and wanted to help. She was elected to Hamilton City Council in 1997, and fought hard for people and small businesses. In 2004 Hamilton Centre sent her to Queen’s Park, and in 2009 the NDP chose her to lead the party. Andrea is focused on fixing health care, making homes more affordable, and finally giving working people the respect they deserve. Andrea’s a mom, a Hamiltonian, and she’s running to be our premier.
