Ross Romano was elected to the Ontario Legislature on June 1st 2017 during a by-election. A relentless advocate for Sault Ste. Marie, Ross previously served as a City Councillor for Ward 6.

A life-long resident of Sault Ste. Marie, Ross understands the challenges our community faces every day and the opportunities that lay ahead. Whether he is at home or at Queens Park, Ross tirelessly works for the best interests of Sault Ste. Marie.
Since being elected, Ross has fought for jobs in our community, worked to help uncover a recent hydro-scandal, and advocated for better access to healthcare and Long Term Care for seniors in Northern Ontario. Ross has quickly gained a reputation for being passionate about his community, particularly when, during a fiery speech, he demanded an apology from Kathleen Wynne after a Liberal member referred to Sault Ste. Marie as a ‘No Man’s Land’
Born and raised on his family’s farm, Ross attended Algoma University before graduating from Windsor Law School. Ross practiced law Sault Ste. Marie for twelve years before beginning his recent election.
A former Chair of the local Downtown Association and Downtown Rotary Club, Ross also enjoyed coaching in the Sault Youth Soccer Association.
