Vis seeking federal Conservative candidate status

Brad Vis was recently in Ashcroft and Cache Creek to meet with people and acquaint himself with the area and its issues.

Brad Vis was in Ashcroft and Cache Creek recently, becoming acquainted with the area he hopes to represent after next year’s federal election.

Vis is running for election as the Conservative candidate for the new Matsqui/Mission/Fraser Valley riding.

Vis announced his intention to seek the candidacy in May and started campagning right away. At the time, he was working in Minister of International Trade, Ed Fast’s office. “When I found out there was a new seat being created in my home town, I said I have to go home and run or I’m going to regret it,” he said.

Vis spoke to policians in both communities, talking about the landfill and Ashcroft Terminal, and the need for economic development. He had already heard of the Terminal through his work for the Minister.

He visited local businesses and discovered the world’s best cinnamon buns at the Ashcroft Bakery, and dropped in on a Rotary meeting at the River Inn.

Supporters must have a Conservative Party membership to elect a candidate. Forms can be gotten online or by calling 778-808-9062
