Political milestone today for local MPP

Today marks 40 years in the provincial legislature for St. Catharines MPP Jim Bradley. 

It was June 9th, 1977 when Bradley was first elected. 

He was a city councillor for 8 years before winning election as an MPP.

The longest serving MPP was Liberal Harry Nixon who served more than 42 years.  

With Bradley planning to seek re-election in 2018 he stands to break that record should he win next June.
