She was acclaimed to the position for the riding of Chatham-Kent-Leamington in Tilbury last night.

Omstead was born and raised in Chatham-Kent and now lives in Leamington, working as an elementary teacher.

She believes politics has gotten a lot darker since the last election in 2015, but she’s not going to let that change her strategy.


Omstead came within 2,300 votes of defeating Dave Van Kesteren in 2015. The Conservatives have chosen Leamington-area farmer Dave Epp as their nominee.
