Premier Doug Ford's ties to lobbyists have "alarmed" a Progressive Conservative riding association president, according to an internal party email obtained by the Star.

In a letter to Ford, Tory executive director Mike Crase and other PC officials, Lillo Ognibene complained about the premier's appointment of a dozen lobbyists to his 17-member re-election committee.

"These series of decisions represent a continued undermining of the democratic integrity of our Ontario PC Party," Ognibene, who is president of the Cambridge riding association, wrote last week.
