The full interview with bonus material:
There are many challenges running a political campaign during a pandemic, especially with a lockdown and stay-at-home order. Politicians and strategists must use some real ingenuity to get their message out. The old-fashioned door-knocking, kitchen table conversations, and “get-to-know-you” parties are impossible. Besides these hurdles, both candidates have a short timeline. The nomination meeting is on June 5.
Jeff Kawzenuk, a retired high school principal, is crisscrossing Northumberland-Peterborough South drumming up support. He is well-known across the riding, having worked in schools from Port Hope to Brighton. Like any candidate, he must answer a fundamental question: Can he beat the current MPP, David Piccini.
Here is my interview with Jeff Kawzenuk.
