Conservative nomination announced
Penticton resident and real estate agent Marshall Neufeld officially announced Tuesday that he is seeking the Conservative nomination for the new federal riding of South Okanagan West Kootenay.
Neufeld told over 70 supporters gathered in Penticton that he is running not only to be their Conservative nominee in the next federal election but also to become the South Okanagan West Kootenay's Member of Parliament.
Neufeld sat for two terms on the National Council of the Conservative Party of Canada and is past president of the local Conservative riding association.
He is also the former senior parliamentary assistant in Ottawa to the Hon. Stockwell Day.
Day expressed his support for Neufeld, stating "The people of South Okanagan West Kootenay would be well served by having Marshall as their representative."
While working on Parliament Hill, Neufeld says he experienced first hand how much good can be achieved through politics, whether implementing a large scale project for the benefit of many people, or defending basic economic principles of low taxes, free trade and a fair and open field for competition.
"Let there be no misunderstanding, this riding will not be a guaranteed seat for any of the three main parties, the Conservatives, the NDP or the Liberals under Justin Trudeau," he said.
"There will be a real race here in the next election. It is our job, the members of the Conservative Party of Canada in South Okanagan West Kootenay to ensure this seat is Conservative after the next election."
