Although Ross is a new face to local politics, he has been a member of the BC Liberal Party for the past 17 years.

Jordan Ross, one of the five candidates vying for the candidacy for the BC Liberal Party, officially launched his campaign with a focus on his love of the region and hope that his three children will have the opportunity to live, learn, work and contribute to the area.

“Like many of our Shuswap residents, my ability to provide for my family is dependent on small business, the backbone of every successful economy.  I believe that in order for us to grow and succeed, we need to invest in training and education that promotes entrepreneurship in our schools and society.  This will lead us to a culture of innovation, job creation and a more stable economy.”

Although Ross is a new face to local politics, he has been a member of the BC Liberal Party for the past 17 years. He holds an undergraduate degree with a political science concentration and until recently has spent the last five years serving as George Abbott’s riding association vice president.

Ross has lived in Salmon Arm for the last seven years, working for various manufacturers in business development, marketing and communications. He also sits on the board of directors for the Shuswap Youth Soccer Association, enjoys downhill skiing, golf and motorcycling.

Other candidates for the position include  Marty Bootsma,  Greg Kyllo, Will Hansma and Mel Arnold.

The candidate nomination meeting is set for Jan. 5.
