Read Marlene Catterall's endorsement of Anita

Marlene Catterall, who was the Member of Parliament for Ottawa West-Nepean from 1988-2006 and who won five elections for Liberals in this riding, today endorsed Anita Vandenbeld for the nomination to become the next federal Liberal candidate in Ottawa West-Nepean. This is what she said:
I am proud to support Anita Vandenbeld as our Liberal candidate for the next federal election.
I know what it takes to win as a Liberal in Ottawa West-Nepean. Anita has what it takes.

I know what it takes to earn the confidence, trust and loyalty of the people of Ottawa West-Nepean. Anita has what it takes.

I know what it takes to represent this wonderfully diverse community, to take to Parliament their voices, concerns and interests and to help achieve their hopes and aspirations for the future of our great country.Anita has what it takes.

In 2011, Anita ran one of the most successful Liberal campaigns in the country.  Running against a high profile popular Conservative minister she did 50% better the Party did nationally, an amazing personal achievement for a first-time candidate. Since that election she has continued to forge the relationships in our community and build the team that we need to win.

In some of the toughest places in the world, Anita has been on the front lines negotiating with leaders at the highest levels, training and supporting new parliaments and new democraciesShe knows what representation means!

There’s no learning curve with Anita. Her Parliamentary experience as a policy analyst, as a political strategist and as Deputy Chief of Staff to the House Leader in the most recent Liberal government, means she will hit the ground running as our M.P.  She will get action on what matters to us.

I have full confidence that Anita will be a great candidate and a great M.P. for Ottawa West-Nepean.

Marlene Catterall,
Member of Parliament, 1988 -2006 (Ottawa West-Nepean)
