Executive Director’s Update
Good afternoon –
Like many of you, I watched Christy Clark’s news conference this morning with many emotions.
Appreciation for the game-changing work she has done to strengthen British Columbia and energize our party.
Admiration for her character, strength, and dedication.
Gratitude for the opportunity to have knocked on doors for her, worked with her, and learned from her.
And above all, determination to help build on her legacy as we enter a new chapter for Today’s BC Liberals.
For those who don’t know me yet, let me introduce myself. I first got involved in the BC Liberal Party knocking on doors in Kamloops, where I grew up, in the 2009 election. Since then I’ve had the privilege of helping run a local campaign in 2013, working in the Premier’s Office and the Ministry of Health, and managing BC public affairs for a major national company. I followed my heart back to the party last December to serve as communications director in the lead-up to the 2017 campaign, where I had the benefit of working closely with our candidates and their teams.
In that time, I’ve been blessed to live and work in the Interior, the North, the Island, and the Lower Mainland – getting to know many of our communities and the people who define what BC is all about. And now I’m deeply honoured to take on the role of executive director for the exciting times ahead.
Over the coming months, the team at the party office and I will have three key priorities:
- Working with the Party Executive to plan and execute a leadership election process that will further grow, renew, and strengthen our party.
- Decisively winning a by-election in Kelowna West, adding a new member to our tremendously strong BC Liberal caucus team..
- Ensuring that the next leader takes the helm of a strong, united, and grassroots-based party that honours volunteers, welcomes all British Columbians who share our core values, and is prepared to fight and win the next election.
I want to take this opportunity to thank Rich Coleman for taking on the responsibility of leading the official opposition caucus into the upcoming legislative session. I’m looking most forward to working with our incredible team of staff, MLAs, and volunteers to put our party on a solid foundation for future growth.
And I look forward to talking with many of you in the coming days, weeks, and months. Please don’t hesitate to reach out.
At your service,
Today’s BC Liberals
