Former deputy mayor of Spaniard's Bay says he wants to be district's MHA

Although Liberal nominations have not been called in the district of Port de Grave for the pending provincial elections, at least one high profile candidate has announced his intentions to run.

Tony Menchions, former deputy mayor of Spaniard's Bay, has announced his intention to seek the Liberal nomination in the Port de Grave district.

Tony Menchions, a former deputy mayor and current councillor of the Town of Spaniard’s Bay, announced Tuesday he plans on seeking the nomination for the Liberals in a seat that is currently held by Progressive Conservative MHA Glenn Littlejohn.

“I am eager to announce that I am running for the Liberal nomination for the Port de Grave district,” Menchions wrote in a news release. “I have been involved with the party directly and indirectly for the past 20-plus years.”

Menchions, who is a member of the Celtic band Greeley’s Reel, served on the Spaniard’s Bay council as deputy mayor from 2005 to 2013. He is still a councillor for the town.

There have been many names discussed throughout the district who may consider the Liberal nomination, from town councillors to former educators, but Menchions is the first to announce his intentions.

    This is really good news for the provincial Liberals. Having such a high profile and very well respected candidate in that district will bode well for them. I live in that district and will most certainly vote for Mr. Menchions before Mr. Littlejohn. I say this with no party ties or biases whatsoever. This will be a district to watch indeed.

    Tony would make A Great MHA for the Liberal Government. He is A very Hard Worker and Dedicated and Determinated. He will Always put his Job First making sure he will do all possible to help the People. Kindhearted and very Sincere.
