Cariboo North New Democrat Launches Campaign
Prince George, B.C. – The BC NDP candidate for Cariboo North, Scott Elliott, is launching his campaign at 11 o’clock this morning at his campaign office at 683 Front Street in Quesnel.
Elliott says he’s been busy going door to door, asking people about their priorities. He says “the most important part of an MLA’s job is to listen to people, and to work to make their lives better. As MLA, I will be the engaged, passionate advocate that our community needs and deserves.”
A two-term Quesnel Councillor, Elliott takes pride in helping to find the operational savings that made Quesnel’s budget sustainable while investing in needed capital projects. An avid outdoorsman with a long history of community volunteering, Elliott says he understands his community and what it needs from provincial government.
“On the eve of an election, after 16 years of BC Liberal neglect, Christy Clark is making a fanfare of funding announcements, hoping members of this community will forget that she’s been looking out for her rich friends and insiders while the rest of us fall further behind.” Elliott said.
“John Horgan and the BC NDP are on your side. It’s time to elect a government that works for you.”
Elliott is contesting the Cariboo-North seat against incumbent Liberal Coralee Oakes in the May 9th provincial election.
