August 3, 2012
Vancouver – The BC Liberal Party announced today that MLAs Linda Reid, Jane Thornthwaite and Ralph Sultan are all running again in the upcoming provincial election.
Linda Reid, MLA for Richmond East, was first elected in 1991, and is one of the longest serving members of the Legislature. Reid has announced that she will be running again as the BC Liberal candidate in Richmond East.
“I’m very pleased to be running again to represent the great people of Richmond East. I want to continue to build on the solid record that our party has built, and I want to help Premier Christy Clark build on that legacy,” said Reid.
Reid has served as the Legislature’s Deputy Speaker since 2009, and is focused on supporting children, families, and local agriculture in Richmond.
Ralph Sultan, MLA for West Vancouver-Capilano, has enjoyed working on behalf of his constituents over the past three terms and wants to continue to help deliver for his community.
“Over the past few years our party has gone through significant changes, but we’ve remained dedicated to providing good government based on sound fiscal management. British Columbia continues to have a triple A credit rating, and our job growth ranks second in Canada over the past year,” said Sultan.
Sultan will be acclaimed as the BC Liberal candidate in West Vancouver-Capilano on August 16th.
Fellow North Shore MLA Jane Thornthwaite is also running again in the riding of North Vancouver-Seymour. Thornthwaite will also be acclaimed as the BC Liberal candidate in her riding at a meeting on August 9th.
In April 2012, Thornthwaite helped usher in a new set of bold laws to help curb animal cruelty in B.C. She also has a strong interest in improving the educational experiences of students with special needs.
“I’m proud of our Premier and the hard work that we’ve done on behalf of British Columbians. We’re building momentum ahead of the upcoming election, and I’m proud to be a part of it,” said Thornthwaite.
