October 20, 2012
Penticton – A four-way race for the BC Liberal nomination in Penticton ended Saturday afternoon with Penticton Mayor Dan Ashton emerging as the winner. Ashton is serving in his second term as Mayor.
“I’m going to work hard to help Premier Christy Clark and the BC Liberal team keep British Columbia’s economy on track,” said Ashton.
Ashton won a close race that wrapped up Saturday afternoon. Local Party members were invited to the Penticton Trade and Convention Centre to hear each candidate speak, and make their selections.
“The quality of the candidates in this race speaks to the Party’s strength here in the Okanagan,” added Ashton. “I want to thank my competitors for a spirited and respectful campaign.”
Ashton will be heading to Whistler next weekend to participate in the Party’s 2012 Convention. He is looking forward to rolling up his sleeves and working with Party members to help build a stronger British Columbia.
