Thomson looking forward to work

Steve Thomson is looking forward to getting to work.

The Liberal MLA candidate for Kelowna Mission was elected with more than 54% of the riding's votes during Tuesday's provincial election.

“I really appreciate the confidence and support of the constituents of the Kelowna Mission, I'm looking forward to going to work for them and I'm expecting that will start pretty quickly,” says Thomson.

He says they ran the campaign as if it was a close race all along.

“We had that nervous pit in our stomach until we started to see the numbers come in and they looked pretty encouraging. In the end it was a good, solid win. I'm really pleased with that, I think it sends the message that the Liberal Party is the best to manage BC through these tough times.”

Thomson says the economy was the number one issue they heard about from constituents.

“I'm looking forward to getting down to work with the rest of the team that was elected, Ben on the Westside and Norm in Kelowna - Lake Country. I think we have a great team going forward and this region will be well represented.”
