The Anita media blitz continues, with a great article in the Citizen about some local candidates, with Anita leading right off the bat!

Anita Vandenbeld was picked in November to represent the Liberals in Ottawa West-Nepean. She will be running against high-profile Conservative John Baird.

“We did canvassing training this week. Saturday morning we will be setting up a big canvassing blitz,” she said. “We have our brochures, we have our signs, everything is ready to go.”

Vandenbeld, who opened her campaign office on Richmond Road earlier this week, said she already has a staff of several hundred volunteers anxious to participate.

“I think people are quite optimistic and enthusiastic,” she said. Donations have started rolling in, but Vandenbeld says she intends to send out a fundraising letter to her base in the near future.
