Re: Expect a Fascinating Election in Ontario, by Anne Jarvis, Jan 11

The backgrounds of many candidates were highlighted in the minus one column: Windsor West PC candidate John Leontowicz.

Please allow me to fill the knowledge gap. I speak from personal experience of having watched it for the last 20 years.

In my opinion, Leontowicz is an accomplished public servant, a brilliant administrator, a charismatic leader, a committed community servant, an active community volunteer, and a trustworthy person. I feel that he is truly a man for the people.

He has the skill set to represent Windsor effectively at Queen’s Park with the possibility of a ministerial appointment.

Here are some highlights of the candidate’s background:

Police Forty Years Exemplary Service Medal; Queen Elizabeth Diamond Jubilee Award; Ontario Certified Municipal Manager; Member of the Order of Merit; former member of the Canadian Association of Chiefs of Police; former member of the FBI/Chiefs (LEEDA) in the United States; honorary rotarian; board member of Windsor Regional Hospital; Windsor Regiment fundraising volunteer; LaSalle Police Youth Charity.

He has also dedicated time to various charities including Special Olympics, the Windsor Regiment, hospital fundraisers, the Ukrainian Catholic Church and many other fundraisers throughout the region.

Windsor badly needs a seat at the provincial government table.

All signs point to the Ontario PCs forming the next government. I believe that Leontowicz can be a strong, strategic and tireless voice for Windsor West in Queen’s Park.
