NDP MPP Taras Natyshak (Essex) will not seek re-election in 2022.

“After more than 10 years as the Member of Provincial Parliament for Essex, I am announcing that I will not be seeking re-election in 2022.  This choice is bittersweet. I fully believe Andrea Horwath will be elected premier in 2022. It was incredibly difficult to choose not to be a member of her caucus as we form a government that’s in it for everyday people,”  he said in a statement.

Natyshak  says that after a decade of splitting time between Essex and Queen’s Park in Toronto, what’s right for my family now is for me to be with them full time.

“It has been the honour of my life to serve our community over the past decade. I am forever grateful to the people of our amazing community who have entrusted me to fight on their behalf to make our province a better place for all”
