Sue McFadden will run in federal election in Mississauga.

After nearly two decades as a Mississauga city councillor, Sue McFadden says she’s now going to try help people from a different political vantage point — Ottawa.

The Mississauga Ward 10 councillor, first elected to the seat in 2006, plans to run as the Conservative candidate in the riding of Mississauga-Streetsville in the next federal election, the Conservative Party of Canada said in a news release issued on Sunday.

The next federal election is expected to take place in October 2025, if not sooner.

Liberal Rechie Valdez is the current MP for the west Mississauga riding.

“Life has become unaffordable for too many Canadians, and crime and chaos are common in our streets because of (Prime Minister) Justin Trudeau’s reckless policies,” McFadden said in the news release. “I hear from my constituents regularly about how hard life has become over the last eight years, which is why I feel motivated to help make a change at the federal level.

“…hardworking Canadians are struggling just to afford fuel, food and shelter,” she continued. “Crime is ravaging our streets. Only a Common Sense Conservative government led by Pierre Poilievre will right this ship and put Canadians back in control of their lives…”

Conservative Party officials say McFadden “has dedicated almost 25 years of her life to public service and has been a results-driven city councillor in Mississauga working to combat crime and keep her community safe.”
