Cristina Martins - MPP for Davenport (October 29th, 2014)

Our Father in Heaven, we pray today for Cristina Martins, Member of Provincial Parliament for Davenport.

Lord I know you decided to use our hands, our mouths and our prayers. Today Lord we pray for our government leader Cristina. We ask Lord that you would give her wisdom, help her to see the world through your eyes. Father, give her everything she needs. We pray Lord for her protection that as a mother of young children, and keep them in your loving care.

Father we pray that she would surround herself with godly counsel, and do what is right in your sight. We pray that she would hear your voice in the middle of all her responsibilities and duties. Bless her today we pray.

Cristina is a community builder, healthcare advocate, and education champion.

She has spent her career working hard to create jobs, grow the economy, and improve our community.

Cristina served as President of the Federation of Portuguese Canadian Business and Professionals, Deputy Chair of the Greater Toronto Business Association, and Director of the European Union Chamber of Commerce in Toronto. Cristina understands that we need to create jobs in order to build the sustainable community that we want.

Born in Portugal, and raised in Davenport, Cristina is married and a mother of two. As a mother, Crsitina understands that funding clean transit is a cornerstone for improving our neighbourhoods.

As a mother of two young children enrolled in our publicly funded education system, she has witnessed firsthand the improvements that Premier Kathleen Wynne and the Ontario Liberal government have made in education.

As a professional in the healthcare industry, she has seen the results of all the positive changes in our health care system since the last PC government.  These personal experiences have made Cristina passionately believe that the Liberal government is our best choice to build Ontario up.

Grateful for the opportunities that Canada has provided to her family, Cristina will fight to ensure that we all have the opportunity to succeed.
