BURLINTON, ON June 27, 2011 Jane McKenna, a Burlington entrepreneur announced she would seek the Progressive Conservative nomination for the Burlington seat in the provincial legislature that is vacant now that Joyce Savoline has ended her term.

Long time Burlington resident, and currently the Director of New Business Development for PLAY Advertising, Jane is also an entrepreneur, recently launching her own company, Rainmaker Consulting.

The Tory standard bearers came out for McKenna in her announcement. “She is a born leader, an amazing promoter and truly a ‘dog with a bone’ on any project she takes on,” said Kathy Thomas, owner of the Bronze Frog Gallery and President of the Rotary Club of Burlington Central. “If Jane can’t get it done … it can’t be done.”

A ward 1 candidate in the last municipal election McKenna has decided to move higher up the food chain and seeks the Burlington Progressive Conservative nomination.  So far she is running against Brian Heagle who has been patiently waiting for an opportunity to rub the Liberal red off his hide.

Mike Wallace, MP Burlington: “Jane McKenna is an intelligent, hard-working and high energy individual. I have known her for many years. She is an active and valuable volunteer in our community. Jane understands the needs of families and small business in Burlington. She will be a dynamic and effective voice for Burlington at Queen’s Park.”

Keith Strong: “Jane is a hardworking individual who always finishes what she starts. She is a dedicated professional who works well alone, but she is also an excellent team player. Jane leads by example. I am proud to have worked with Jane.”

There are now two announced progressive Conservative candidates for the Burlington seat. The Liberals nominated Karmel Sakran and the NDP nominated Peggy Russell.
