KAMLOOPS – Two Kamloops-area BC Liberal candidates are wasting no time launching their campaigns to keep Kamloops and neighboring communities in free enterprise hands. Terry Lake and Todd Stone have signed up new members, put campaign teams in place, and stepped up their conversations with voters as the countdown begins to the May 2013 provincial election.
Terry Lake, who currently serves as B.C.’s environment minister and is seeking a second term as Kamloops-North Thompson MLA, says the BC Liberal government has acknowledged and learned from past mistakes.
“By focusing on job creation and making life more affordable for middle-class families, we’re opening a new chapter in British Columbia,” said Lake. “B.C. is proving to the world that you can lower taxes and balance the books while providing excellent services and protecting those most in need.”
Todd Stone, founder of the Kamloops high-tech company iCompass, is seeking nomination as the BC Liberal candidate in Kamloops-South Thompson.
“I’m proud to be part of a team that is building a bright future for B.C. families,” he said. “With Christy Clark’s leadership and two strong free enterprise MLAs representing the Kamloops region, we can keep delivering on local priorities.”
The BC Liberal riding associations in both ridings will nominate their candidates on Tuesday, Aug. 14 at the Holiday Inn in North Kamloops.
