I am offering myself in service, for good reasons. Think it through.
First: Many have concluded that it is Conservative values, which have been tested over time, that give best government. The disappointments of liberalism in Canada are well known. The social consequences of NDP thinking cannot be denied; any student of history knows what socialism brings. The NDP’s published beliefs have not changed—their philosophical outlook is well known and should be avoided.
Second: Sadly, we have had CCF-NDP since 1952 in New Westminster. After 61 years, it’s time for change. There was only one brief time, when the NDP were discredited and elected only two in the whole province, that we had a Liberal MLA for one term.
This time, the provincewide conclusion is that the government will be replaced. Therefore in this local environment, in New Westminster, the Liberal candidate has a very low chance. So what should we do—just sit home and let our democracy slide with another giveaway?
Third: My candidacy offers a constructive opportunity. Instead of staying home and giving up—as half the voters did last time—in New Westminster we can make national headlines by electing a Conservative.
My political credentials are well known. I’m dedicated to delivering real results for everyone—no one left behind. I’ve spent my political years speaking out for Canadians—who work hard, pay their taxes, and live by the rules. We can begin the march to protect our province, and have representation from the community, rather than only from a party.
Based on Conservative values such as personal responsibility, social and environmental respect, and returning democracy to our community, we now have a positive choice.
Make the effort and choose a better political road by supporting Conservative values at the ballot box. I appeal to you, especially to those who do not vote any more—to those who say it doesn’t matter.
We can do better. I have confidence that wise voters understand and will think it through. Make a commitment to get out and vote at the advance poll. Let me work for you, to conserve the best, and fix the rest. Thank you for your support!
