Political history

Liberal Teresa Piruzza won the riding over the NDP’s Helmi Charif in 2011 by 3,583 votes.

Piruzza replaced her mentor, former cabinet minister Sandra Pupatello when Pupatello decided not to seek re-election.

Pupatello beat New Democrat Mariano Klimowicz by 8,217 votes in the 2007 election. Pupatello, first elected in 1995, did not seeking re-election.

After the 1999 redistribution, Pupatello enjoyed runaway victories in the newly created Windsor West riding in 1999 and 2003, winning by over 18,000 and 14,000 votes, respectively.

The former riding of Windsor-Sandwich was held by Liberal Bill Wrye between 1981 and 1990. The NDP's George Dadamo won the riding in the 1990 election; it passed to the Liberals, represented by Pupatello, in 1995.
