NDP set to nominate Kelowna candidate

BC New Democrats will know by the end of the month who will carry their colours into the May provincial election in Kelowna-Lake Country.

The constituency will hold its nomination meeting Tuesday, Feb. 26 at the Rutland Centennial Hall.

The nomination meeting will begin at 7 p.m.

This is the only Kelowna riding in which a nominating meeting is necessary.

Candidates have already been acclaimed in Kelowna-Mission and Westside-Kelowna.

Tom Macauley and Mike Nuyens are contesting the nomination in Kelowna-Lake Country.

Macauley's nomination campaign has made him believe the BC NDP can win Kelowna - Lake Country.

"As a young nontraditional candidate I have had success connecting with the growing non-voting population. More frequently than ever we are building our membership and volunteer lists with young people. If this trend continues the BC NDP will win Kelowna-Lake Country," says Macauley.

Nuyens, a life long resident of the valley says he understands the challenges of living in this region.

"Having lived my entire life in Lake Country, and through the operation of my business, I do understand the challenges local families are facing. I'm a strong community activist, as a volunteer firefighter and as a volunteer on both of my son's hockey teams," says Nuyens.

The successful nominee will be up against incumbent Liberal MLA Norm Letnick and BC Conservative challenger Graeme James.
