A rookie Meaford councillor is the latest to enter the Conservative nomination race for Bruce-Grey-Owen Sound.
Paul Vickers has announced his intention to seek the federal Tory nomination in the riding, becoming the fifth person to step forward since sitting MP Larry Miller said last month he will not seek re-election in the fall.
Vickers is only months into his first term as a councillor in Meaford.
He has operated a family farm since 1988 and been involved in several leadership positions in the dairy industry, most notably as a director with the Gay Lea Foods Co-operative for 15 years.
Alongside Vickers, Rick Byers, Chad Richards, Ken Brown and Alex Ruff have all announced their intentions to seek the federal Conservative nomination for Bruce-Grey-Owen Sound.
