An Olympian is making a run at Federal Politics and has already hit the campaign trail.
Adam van Koeverden is seeking the Liberal Federal Nomination in the next election.
He was out campaigning on Saturday afternoon, and spoke with myFM about what he’s heard from Miltonians.
When it comes to what’s important for him for the upcoming election, he’s going with two issues that he can relate to.
In order to vote for van Koeverden, you have to register as a Liberal before the nomination election is announced.
On top of running in the next election, he is also a two-time flag bearer at the Olympics and won a gold medal in the 500-meter kayak race at the Athens Olympics.
The native of Oakville gave plenty of credit to Milton for his athletic career.
He’s running against Azim Rizvee who ran for the Liberals in 2015.
