Andrea Kaiser will once again represent the Liberal party as the candidate for the Niagara Falls riding in the next general federal election.

Kaiser officially announced her candidacy Wednesday.

“During the COVID-19 pandemic, the federal Liberal government has demonstrated decisive leadership in protecting our health, supporting our workers and small businesses, and securing access to vaccines," she said in a media release.

"I am running to be our member of Parliament because I will fight to protect our health, rebuild our local economy and take decisive action on climate change,” she said.

The Niagara Falls riding, now represented by Conservative Tony Baldinelli, includes Niagara-on-the-Lake, Niagara Falls and Fort Erie.

In the 2019 federal election, Andrea Kaiser won more votes than any other Liberal candidate — federal or provincial — in the riding's history.

She said she plans to "leverage this momentum to build the strong grassroots movement needed to win the riding, and serve our community in the House of Commons."

“Given the enormous challenges we face, Niagara Falls, Fort Erie and Niagara-on-the Lake need a representative who does more than just represent their party in Ottawa. We need a strong member of Parliament who champions our community and its values every day. I will be that member of Parliament because this is who I have been my entire adult life,” said Kaiser.

A life-long resident of Niagara and working mother of two, she said her campaign will focus on "protecting the health of our community, bringing good jobs to Niagara and preserving our precious natural environment."

Her campaign's website is www.votekaiser.ca.
