The Conservative campaign of Chatham-Kent-Leamington incumbent Dave Van Kesteren has set up its headquarters in Chatham, but it will be into September before a Leamington location is operational.

He says, as much as anything, the Chatham office is being used to construct signs, and because of the length of the campaign, he is gearing up gradually.

“None of us have experienced a campaign for this length of time, so it’s going to be a different format it’s going to be a different approach,” he says. “The office in Chatham is there largely to create the signs and do the preparatory work, we can do that now in one office.”

Van Kesteren doesn’t think Leamington and Essex County residents will feel left out if the don’t get a Conservative campaign office until next month, saying a lot of good things have happened in the community over the past four years.
