Some would argue she has been campaigning for a couple of weeks -- but Huron Bruce MPP Carol Mitchell officially kicked off her re-election campaign today.
Mitchell officially opened campaign offices in Port Elgin, Walkerton and Goderich.
In Port Elgin, she tells Bayshore Broadcasting News she is running on her record.
Mitchell says the riding is in better shape today than it was in 2003.
She says everything from infrastructure, to sewers, to schools and hospitals have been improved and people see the difference
In Walkerton, Mitchell reiterated that the pending closure of the Walkerton jail will not cost the community a cent.
In addition, Mitchell says she has assurances from Attorney General Chris Bentley that the Walkerton courthouse will remain a strong contributor to the legal system in Ontario and will be there for decades to come.
Mitchell took the gloves off when it comes to her two main opponents -- Progressive Conservative Lisa Thompson and NDP's Grant Robertson.
She says both would destroy employment in Huron Bruce, particularly at Bruce Power.
Mitchell says the Liberals are on record as supporting the employer of 5,000 people for years to come.
She says the Conservatives would eliminate the Ontario Power Authority which has contracts with Bruce Power and the NDP would shut down nuclear plants altogether.
Mitchell is after her third consecutive term as Liberal MPP for Huron Bruce.
