BC Conservatives set nomination dates
Oct 5, 2012 / 3:39 pm
The BC Conservative Party today announced nomination contests will be held in Vernon-Monashee and Shuswap on October 13 and 20.
The first tilt is expected to be decided by acclamation, as Scott Anderson, a Vernon business man, is the sole declared candidate.
The second is shaping up as a battle in Salmon Arm, where three contestants - Tom Birch, Ed Klop and Maureen Walker - are vying for the party's nomination.
Birch is a project manager with a software company serving the forest industry, Klop owns and operates a thriving asphalt company, and Walker, a former newspaper publisher, is active with the Chamber of Commerce.
"The province's Interior is a particularly strong region for the BC Conservatives," said John Cummins, party leader who will be attending both nomination contests.
"Our candidates in Vernon-Monashee and Shuswap are well-respected for their commitment to delivering real change to the way the government in Victoria works on behalf of British Columbians."
