A pair of Delta municipal councillors are set to duke it out in the May provincial election.
Scott Hamilton, a four-term Delta councillor, will be acclaimed as the B.C. Liberals' candidate in Delta North on Saturday (January 5).
His one-term council colleague, Sylvia Bishop, was nominated by the B.C. NDP in December.
“No single issue is more important to British Columbians than our economy,” Hamilton said today (January 2) in a party news release. “The next election is about protecting and growing our economy with Premier Christy Clark and the BC Liberals, or going backwards under the NDP.”
NDP MLA Guy Gentner, who currently represents the riding in Victoria, is not seeking re-election.
