Heavenly Father, we thank you for MPP Andrea Horwath. We pray that you will bless her life, health and family. Through her desire to see the people of Ontario have the opportunity to build a good life, we also pray that you would allow her to view this goal through a heavenly lens. As she leads in the role of Leader of the Official Opposition, we pray that you would grant her strength and courage in abundant measure to speak well into the issues of the day. In Jesus’ name, we ask that you would also grant to her and the Opposition Critics integrity and wisdom from on high as they hold our provincial government to account. Amen.
Born and raised in Hamilton, Andrea was elected to Hamilton City Council in 1997, then as the MPP for Hamilton-Centre in 2004. The 51-year-old Horwath likes to swim and work out in a gym. She’s a Hamilton Tiger-Cats fan, and is known in NDP circles as a wicked cheesecake maker. Her staff say she’s a hard worker, driven to accomplish things, and a strong woman.
