Renfrew-Nipissing-Pembroke Green Party candidate Stefan Klietsch says if elected, his first priority would be giving Barry’s Bay-area residents the income they need to afford daily expenses.

He says it’s about encouraging residents to join the workforce.

Klietsch is up against Independent candidate Hector Clouthier, Conservative candidate Cheryl Gallant, NDP candidate Daniel McCarthy and Liberal candidate Jeff Lehoux.
