RENFREW Over the weekend, Liberals across Renfrew-Nipissing-Pembroke nominated Oliver Jacob, McNab/Braeside councillor, as their Ontario Liberal candidate for the June 2 election.

Over the last two years, Canadians have learned just how much we can accomplish when we work together to support everyone in our community, particularly the most vulnerable, said Jacob. In this campaign, I am proud to represent Renfrew-Nipissing-Pembroke as your Ontario Liberal candidate as we work together to invest in high-quality education, invest in supportive health care and revitalized long-term care, and bring much needed support to our small businesses and communities right across Renfrew County.

Born and raised in Renfrew County, Jacob is a community leader, youth advocate and volunteer who has worked in communities across Renfrew-Nipissing-Pembroke. Since 2018, Jacob has served as one of the youngest municipal councillors in the history of the Township of McNab/Braeside.

According to a Liberal press release Jacob, as a municipal politician, has championed community engagement, community safety and wellbeing, and is supporting programs that increase affordable housing options through the Greater Arnprior Community Council on Poverty and Homelessness.

He also brings proven leadership experience through various volunteer roles including as a board member of Arnprior Regional Health, United Way East Ontario Renfrew County, and as the former co-chairman of the Renfrew County Youth Network, the release states.

After completing a bachelor of arts with double major in history and politics at Acadia University in Nova Scotia, Jacob returned to Renfrew County to start his career working with both the Town of Arnprior and the Labour Market Group of Renfrew and Lanark.

These professional experiences have proven the need for a strong, progressive government that listens to the unique needs of rural workers, businesses and community groups and to provide real leadership on key local issues like housing, education, health care, food security, infrastructure renewal, broadband internet, cellular service and much more, the release concludes.
