MCRAE AND FACEY GET READY TO ROLL – BC LIBERAL NORTH ISLAND TEAM TAKES SHAPE
October 1, 2012
CAMPBELL RIVER – The BC Liberal Party has announced that MLA and Education Minister Don McRae was recently acclaimed as the party’s candidate for Comox Valley, and that Nick Facey, a PhD candidate in business running for the party’s nomination for North Island, will be acclaimed at a meeting in Campbell River on Tuesday.
Don McRae, the newly appointed Minister of Education, was first elected in 2009 and is ready to fight for re-election in 2013.
“I’m running again because I know how important it is to keep British Columbia on the right track,” said McRae. “I have a young family and I want to ensure that we keep growing British Columbia’s economy so that there are jobs for my young kids when they grow up.”
Nick Facey, born and raised in Campbell River, is running for the first time and wants to bring a young fresh face to the political scene in British Columbia.
“I want to ensure that young people come to the North Island to seek a living, and parents move here because it’s an ideal place to raise their kids,” said Facey. “The key to that is ensuring that there are jobs in our region, and Premier Christy Clark has made jobs her number one focus. That’s why I’m standing with the Premier to help keep British Columbia’s economy moving forward.”
“Nick Facey will be a great candidate for the North Island, and I’m looking forward to working with him more closely on the issues that are important to our region,” added McRae.
McRae was acclaimed at a meeting in Courtenay on September 30th, and he will join Facey for his candidate selection meeting tomorrow in Campbell River.
