Graham Letto won the Liberal nomination to run for Labrador West's MHA position in the fall.

Former Labrador City Mayor Graham Letto won the Liberal nomination last evening.

Letto was up against current Labrador City Mayor Karen Oldford and Lindo Watkins to run for MHA for Labrador West.

Letto said he felt grateful.

“I want to congratulate Karen Oldford and Lindo Watkins for putting their name forward and running a very respectful campaign. I thought it was a good campaign for all three of us. I appreciate the opportunity now to represent the people of Labrador West as a Liberal candidate.”
Letto attributed the nomination win to his volunteers and supporters.

“When I came in I was very pleased with the response I got from people. As the weeks went on I could see our support growing. I didn’t take anything for granted and thought it’d be closer than it actually was. When you have a good team with you, which I did, a lot of volunteers and supporters behind the scenes.”
The federal election will come before the provincial election, and Letto said although he’d rather it be the other way around he’ll focus on a solid campaign strategy.

 “I’ll be here on the ground for both elections, I will get out and meet the people and go door to door.  It gives us three months to get our support base in place and get around and talk to the people.”
Letto said he feels confident going into the provincial election.

“I’m not taking anything for granted; I respect the opposition parties and what they can do as well. It’ll be a good team in place using the same philosophy to identify the vote and get it in the ballot box.”
