MARY POLAK ACCLAIMED AS BC LIBERAL CANDIDATE IN LANGLEY
LANGLEY – Today, at a meeting in her constituency, Mary Polak will be acclaimed as the BC Liberal Party’s candidate in Langley. Polak’s candidate selection meeting comes the day after a former high profile BC Conservative candidate moved over to the BC Liberal Party.
“Our party is united and energized about the direction that we are heading,” said MLA and Minister Mary Polak. “We’re focused on creating jobs, keeping British Columbia’s economy strong and making life more affordable for families.”
Polak is excited about the news that former BC Conservative candidate John Martin has joined the BC Liberals. “I’m very pleased that John Martin has joined our party and that he intends to seek our nomination in Chilliwack,” added Polak. “John’s decision is a strong endorsement of the direction of our party.”
“We are motivated and ready to win in 2013. We have a lot of work ahead of us, but we’re confident that the next election will be a two way race between ourselves and the NDP,” said Polak.
Polak was recently appointed Minister of Transportation in Premier Christy Clark’s renewed cabinet. First elected in 2005, Polak is proud of the work accomplished on behalf of her community including the Mufford Crescent overpass and the Gateway of Hope. Polak looks forward to continuing to advance Langley's issues in the coming years.
