B.C. Conservative Leader John Cummins is running in the electoral district of Langley in the May 14 provincial election.
This will pit the former federal Reform and Conservative MP against two-term B.C. Liberal MLA Mary Polak.
“My family home is in south Langley, and I hope next May to be elected by my fellow Langley residents as their MLA,” Cummins stated in a news release today (January 7).
Cummins also indicated that he will campaign on the same issues that other B.C. Conservative candidates will pursue on the road to this year’s balloting.
“Those issues include addressing B.C.’s declining wages by promoting the creation of high-paying jobs; investing in skills and job training; encouraging natural-resource development in British Columbia’s northern and rural regions; ending the province’s on-going series of budgetary deficits; and improving fiscal scrutiny and accountability,” Cummins stated.
