CHRIS RICKETTS TO RUN FOR THE BC LIBERALS IN ESQUIMALT-ROYAL ROADS
September 16, 2012
Esquimalt – Today, the BC Liberal Party announced that businessman Chris Ricketts will be the party’s candidate in the riding of Esquimalt-Royal Roads.
Ricketts is looking forward to working alongside Premier Christy Clark to help the BC Liberals win re-election.
“As someone who depends on a thriving construction industry, I believe it is vitally important that we maintain a government that is committed to keeping B.C.’s economy strong,” said Ricketts, who owns and runs a small residential construction firm that operates across Greater Victoria.
“The BC Liberals have kept the province on the right track at a time of global economic uncertainty. Under our party’s watch, B.C. is leading the country in job growth and is on track for a balanced budget.”
“We’re excited to have Chris join our BC Liberal team. Chris will add a strong voice for keeping B.C. on the right track here in the Capital region,” said Ida Chong, the MLA for Oak Bay-Gordon Head and the Minister of Aboriginal Relations and Reconciliation.
Ricketts will be acclaimed as the party’s candidate in Esquimalt-Royal Roads at a candidate selection meeting in the riding this afternoon.
