A Niagara At Large News Brief
“Welcome to the new Thorold Satellite Office” said Welland Riding MPP Cindy Forster during a recent official opening of the office.
With Thorold Mayor Ted Luciani on hand, Forster said it is very important for the seniors we serve and other people in Thorold and South St. Catharines to be able to meet with the staff of their MPP. Through arrangements with Thorold City Council, a space is being provided at the Thorold Seniors Drop in Centre.
Forster says that she takes her role as a representative of the people seriously and with a large riding it’s important to connect with people in all parts of Welland Riding which includes Port Colborne, Wainfleet, Welland, Thorold and South St. Catharines. People are welcome to come to the constituency office to talk about different provincial issues and she hopes the satellite office will be a good resource for constituents to take advantage of.
A constituency assistant will be in the office, located in The Thorold Seniors Centre, 1 Ormond Street South in Thorold, from 1:30 to 4:00 pm each Wednesday.
Welland MP Malcolm Allen also provides assistance on federal issue’s every Tuesday at the Thorold Tourism Office located at the Lock 7 Viewing Complex, 50 Chapel Street.
Forster said the ribbon cutting was an opportunity to also thank those who have made the opening possible including Thorold City Council and the Thorold Seniors Centre.
