Liberals Hold Campaign Office Grand Opening
Prince George, B.C. – Local Liberal MLAs Shirley Bond and Mike Morris held the grand opening for their shared campaign office today.
The office – located in the 2300 block of Westwood Drive – was jammed with supporters of all ages and gave like-minded Liberal supporters the chance to chat and eat – and to be reminded of the task ahead.
“Look at the facts,” urged Shirley Bond, Prince George-Valemount MLA. “Ask yourself how the NDP will pay for all their promises.”
Bond – who is seeking her fifth consecutive term in office – said her supporters want to see the momentum her government has created leading the country in job creation, continue.
“They want a government that’s going to continue to focus on job creation. These things matter to them. So, I don’t have trouble energizing this group.”
Meanwhile Morris, whose seeking his second term as the MLA for Prince George-Mackenzie, noted he’s seeing a broad coalition of support gathering behind him – including in places you wouldn’t normally expect.
“I do. I’ve had people come up to me who are strong union members, mostly private sector unions, that say they support me,” he said. “So, I take that as a good indication that I’ve got a broad base of support and I’m happy with that.”
The only other declared candidates in both ridings are the NDP’s Natalie Fletcher (PG-Valemount) and Bobby Deepak (PG-Mackenzie).
Deepak will hold his campaign office opening next Thursday. Fletcher hasn’t set a firm date for the opening of her office but says it will occur shortly after Deepak’s.
Voters head to the polls May 9.
