SHIPLEY WILL NOT RUN AGAIN IN 2019 7/9/2018 11:27:22 AM
This past Sunday in Poplar Hill wasn't just a BBQ that was hosted by Lambton-Kent-Middlesex MP Bev Shipley to sit and chat with supporters and non-supporters, it was also the platform for a huge announcement. Shipley announced he would not be running in the next federal election. Shipley says it's been the greatest honour representing the people of Lambton-Kent-Middlesex, and he is truly grateful for their support over the past years that he has been the MP.
Shipley was first elected in January 2006 and served his constituents through the 39th, 40th, 41st, and the current 42nd Parliament. Over his tenure he also headed up many committees like the Standing Committee on Agriculture and Agri-food from October 2013 until dissolution of Parliament in 2015. The next federal election will be October of 2019.
