Leardi is a former Deputy-Mayor of Amherstburg and a lawyer with over 20 years of litigation experience. Having lived, worked and invested in Essex all his life, Leardi understands the issues that matter to the region and its residents. He brings a track record of success running for council, first as councillor and subsequently as Deputy Mayor, demonstrating he has what it takes to win.
“Premier Doug Ford and the PC Team at Queen’s Park have been working tirelessly to keep us safe and put Ontario on a solid path to recovery,” said Leardi. “I’m proud to have lived, worked and invested in our great Town of Essex. But our riding has been poorly represented for a decade. We deserve better. It’s time to give Essex a voice at the table. As your representative in Government, we can realize the fullest potential of our community and ensure our needs are a top priority.”
