Conservatives begin candidate search

With the announcement that Colin Mayes will not seek re-election, the North Okanagan-Shuswap Conservative Association (NOSCA) will be actively seeking out nominees for the Conservative Party of Canada candidate position for the 2015 federal election.

Mayes received a standing ovation in thanks for his nearly 10 years of representation of the Okanagan Shuswap riding at their recent annual general meeting.

While announcing his retirement from federal politics, Mayes also pledged to complete his term with the same energy he has always brought to representing the people of this riding.

Incoming Electoral District Association (EDA) President Linda Hawes stated, “Colin will be leaving behind rather large shoes to fill, but our newly elected board will be actively seeking a Conservative candidate worthy of following in his footsteps, perhaps as early as the fall of this year.”

The local EDA board will be meeting again in May and will determine the candidate selection process in conjunction with federal party coordinators.
