It’s official. Our region’s MP will be seeking another term to represent the Kootenay-Columbia riding in next year’s federal election.
Wayne Stetski was nominated at a meeting in Nelson Saturday.
He says he wants to keep working hard for his constituents and make sure they get what they need from the government.
Stetski adds he’s excited to work with party leader Jagmeet Singh to help make life better for Kootenay-Columbia residents.
He says there are plenty of issues to tackle in the riding.
“We still have some work to do, certainly around climate change, making sure that we are doing our part and starting the conversion to local green energy,” Stetski says. “Ultimately, it would be great if people didn’t have to go to Northern Alberta or Northeastern British Columbia to find work.”
Stetski will be running against Rob Morrison who secured the Conservative nomination last month.
The Green and Liberal parties haven’t nominated their Kootenay-Columbia candidate yet.
The election happens October 21st next year.
