BC LIBERALS NOMINATE CLOVECHOK; TERRY LAKE RETURNS, JOINED BY TODD STONE IN KAMLOOPS-THOMPSON VALLEY
July 31, 2012
Vancouver - Today, the BC Liberal Party announced the nomination of Doug Clovechok at a noon meeting in Golden for the riding of Columbia River-Revelstoke, and is also announcing that Environment Minister Terry Lake and Kamloops businessman and community leader Todd Stone will be acclaimed in the Kamloops-Thompson Valley ridings on August 14th.
Clovechok has deep roots in the Columbia Valley area, and has a strong record helping enhance educational opportunities for children, youth and adults.
“I’m very excited to be putting my name on the ballot alongside Premier Christy Clark and the BC Liberal team," said Clovechok. “The people of Columbia River-Revelstoke want a representative that will stand up for their interests by putting a real focus on jobs and the economy. That is exactly what I plan to offer them.”
The BC Liberal Party also announced that Terry Lake and Todd Stone will be acclaimed in ridings of Kamloops-North Thompson and Kamloops-South Thompson, respectively. Lake and Stone will hold a joint nomination meeting in Kamloops on August 14th.
Lake was first elected in 2009, and has served as the province’s Minister of Environment since March 2011.
“The election in 2009 was hard fought and hotly contested, and the upcoming election in 2013 will be no different. I’m proud of the record of our government over the past three years, and I’m looking forward to running again to represent Kamloops-North Thompson,” said Lake.
Locally-raised Todd Stone, 40, founder of successful Kamloops-based high-tech company iCompass and former vice-chair of Thompson Rivers University, adds a fresh face to the candidate mix for the BC Liberals.
“The Premier’s leadership on the economy, balancing the budget, and standing up for B.C. is critical. I’m standing with her to ensure we elect a government that supports jobs and opportunity in our region,” said Stone.
