Dr. Fullerton is Guest of Downey Family at Carp Fair
September 26, 2016 – Dr. Merrilee Fullerton received the endorsement of Phil Downey this weekend at the Carp Fair as she was special guest of the Downey Family’s presentation to the winner of the classic 6-Horse Hitch competition. Fullerton was honoured to ride the victory lap with the winning Carson Farms Clydesdales team from Listowel, Ontario.
Merrilee Fullerton is seeking the provincial PC nomination in the new riding of Kanata-Carleton and was very pleased to gain the support of the Downeys, a family with Carp roots and a storied presence at the Carp Fair that spans generations.
Phil Downey states: “I had the pleasure of being with Merrilee at the Carp Fair where we spoke with many people about their concerns with the Wynne government. Hydro is a big issue, and worries about healthcare another.
“Merrilee has a solid grasp of these concerns and she will be effective fighting for us at Queen’s Park. Merrilee won’t embarrass us and will work hard throughout the riding of Kanata-Carelton to represent all groups.
“We can count on her,” Downey concludes.
Merrilee Fullerton commented on Downey’s endorsement, “Phil’s family support means a great deal to me. Phil is a well-known, successful Ottawa businessman. He is a long-time supporter of the Progressive Conservative Party. And he is a wonderful individual who, people in Kanata-Carleton know, has contributed a great deal to our community.”
Phil Downey was born and raised in Carp and has a successful real estate career in Ottawa, founding a company that has offices across Ottawa and the Valley. He is part owner for the Caregard Group of retirement residences as well as a management firm that has developed numerous subdivisions, condominiums and investment properties. Phil has been involved in many community groups, including serving as President of the Carp Fair, Chairman of the Ottawa Congress Centre, and involved with the Royal Ottawa Hospital, Ottawa Heart Institute Foundation, and the Silver Sticks (linking Ottawa Senators to local businesses’ community activities). Phil has also been an active volunteer for many local Progressive Conservatives associations through the years.
Phil Downey joins the Fullerton Team in urging Kanata-Carleton residents who want to see a positive change from the Wynne Government to purchase a PC membership and vote for Merrilee Fullerton at the up-coming provincial nomination meeting.
