The BC Liberals have announced that Jackie Tegart will be the Party’s candidate in Fraser-Nicola in the upcoming provincial election.

Tegart is serving her third term on the Village of Ashcroft Council, and as an elected school trustee, she also served as president of the BC School Trustees Association.

“I’ve served my community in a number of ways in my lifetime, and this opportunity is the next step for me,” said Tegart. “I want to be a part of the renewal going on inside the BC Liberal Party.”

Tegart has been a passionate advocate for economic development and fiscal responsibility throughout her career, and she believes the BC Liberals are the only option to keep British Columbia on a responsible path to prosperity.

“We are four months away from an extremely important election in British Columbia, and I strongly believe Premier Christy Clark has proven that she is the right person for the job,” added Tegart.

Since the beginning of January, the BC Liberals have recruited a number of strong candidates to join their renewed team including Paralympic champion Michelle Stilwell (Parksville-Qualicum), Delta Councillor Scott Hamilton (Delta North) and successful business leader Greg Kyllo (Shuswap).

Tegart will be formally nominated at the Central Café in Ashcroft at 4 pm on Saturday Jan. 26.
