Zac Miller has been acclaimed as NDP candidate for Haliburton-Kawartha Lakes-Brock.
The community activist and volunteer has spent the last several years advocating for improved healthcare and long-term care for the region through the Kawartha Lakes Health Coalition. The group pushes for better universal healthcare, including developing national standards in long-term care.
Currently completing his Master of Information, Miller has a Bachelor of Arts degree in political science. He believes in free post-secondary tuition, according to a media release, and for all student debt to be cancelled.
“Canada relies on the innovation, imagination and determination of these students as they transition to the workforce, focusing on building careers and families in our local communities,” he states.
Key issues for Miller, who grew up in Kawartha Lakes, include affordable housing, improved wages, benefits and pensions, and to bring more industry back to the area, this time with an emphasis on green technology.
“Families in Haliburton-Kawartha Lakes-Brock want our youth to stay close to home and to do that we need to create more opportunities for jobs, housing and recreational activities,” he says.
Miller also serves as vice-president of the Olde Gaol Museum in Lindsay.
