The Progressive Conservative Party of Manitoba is pleased to bring Audrey Gordon onto its team as the candidate in the Fort Rouge constituency for the 2016 provincial election.
“Audrey adds a strong voice and leadership with her wealth of professional and volunteer experience,” said PC Leader Brian Pallister. “I look forward to working with her as we strive to bring a change for the better to constituents in Fort Rouge, and to all Manitobans.”
Audrey is a manager and business analyst for the renal program of the Winnipeg Regional Health Authority. Previously, she was a director of a multiculturalism secretariat for Manitoba Labour and Immigration and was assistant to the department’s deputy minister.
Audrey's community service has included committee, council or board memberships with the Immigrant and Refugee Community Organization of Manitoba, the Winnipeg Regional Health Authority, Vista Park Lodge, the St. Vital/St. Boniface Health Advisory Council and the Congress of Black Women’s Manitoba chapter, among other organizations.
The PC Party is continuing to build momentum across Manitoba with more nominations coming in the weeks and months ahead.
There are 57 constituencies and the PCs have nominated 41 candidates so far. Of the 25 new candidates, 11 are women.
