Anderson, Green join race for Conservative nomination

Two more people have joined the race for the Conservative Party of Canada candidacy for the Okanagan Shuswap riding in anticipation of the 2015 election.

Scott Anderson of Vernon and Janet Green of Lumby announced their intentions last week, joining Salmon Arm businessperson Mel Arnold in the race to replace Colin Mayes, who will retire as MP once his term is over.

Anderson is a long-time Okanagan resident, business owner, and commissioned officer in the Canadian Forces Reserves. He owns a corporate communications business and is a lifelong conservative with experience in politics at all three levels of government.

“It’s crucial that the candidate who is ultimately chosen be a true conservative with the credentials to prove it, and not simply someone looking for a job.”

Green moved to Lumby in 2005 after 35 years in administrative positions with Vancouver General Hospital and the Vancouver Coastal Health Authority. She has been active with both the federal and provincial Conservative parties and served a term on Lumby council.

“People need a voice. Ottawa is a long way away and they need someone they can approach,” she said. “I will... speak loudly on their behalf.”
