Candidates in Kingston’s Portsmouth district won’t use lawn signs during the 2018 municipal-election campaign. Will politicians elsewhere follow their lead

"One of the Portsmouth candidates, Bridget Doherty, argued that conversing with voters is more important than using signs. While campaigning on a recent Thursday evening, Doherty encountered high-school teacher James Mastorakos, who was out walking his dog. He favours scrapping lawn signs, too — in part because they’re an eyesore."

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Community builder and long-time resident of Portsmouth District, Bridget Doherty, is throwing her hat into the ring for this year's Municipal Election. Doherty submitted her 2018 Kingston Council Nomination papers at the City Election Office today, at 9:00 a.m, May 1st, the earliest time possible.
“I’ve volunteered and worked on many community-led initiatives and have learned that municipal level politics touches people most directly, it’s perhaps the most important level of all – and I’m excited at the prospect of bringing Portsmouth District voices to City Hall,” says Doherty.
Doherty has been a lead organizer of the Save Our Prison Farm campaign since 2009 and currently sits on the Correctional Service Canada (CSC) Advisory Panel to re-establish the farms.
Bridget has been actively involved in the Kingston community for over a decade. As a volunteer, and in her work life, Bridget has worked collaboratively with Queen's – the Smith School of Business, the School of Policy Studies, and the Biology Department. She has partnered with Utilities Kingston and Sustainable Kingston on conservation, climate change and energy affordability. She has served as board chair of the Kingston Community Legal Clinic and as a director on the board of Red Squirrel Conservation Services (formerly known as Hearthmakers).
Bridget has learned about Kingston’s vibrant volunteer sector during her years on the grant committee of the Community Foundation for Kingston & Area.
She lives with her husband and three children in Portsmouth District.
