MP Alex Nuttall won't seek re-election in Barrie-Springwater-Oro-Medonte - 2019-03-25
Alex Nuttall is choosing family over federal politics.
The Barrie-Springwater-Oro-Medonte Conservative MP will not run in October's general election. Speaking to Simcoe.com shortly before making the announcement to Barrie city council March 25, Nuttall said the grind of Ottawa was negatively affecting his young family.
"It's time for me to be home," he said. "It's a good time to step away from politics for a while. I went to sign up to coach soccer and realized I couldn't do it. I only have one shot with my children. I don't want to screw that up."
