Two Candidates Seeking Conservative Party Nomination For Lethbridge Riding

 
 

LETHBRIDGE: There will be a race for the Conservative Party nomination in the Lethbridge riding, with two candidates revealing their intentions to run Wednesday.

 

Doug McArthur is the new entrant, having spent 25-years in journalism before becoming an investment advisor, which he's done for the last 17-years.

 

He explained why he decided to come forward and seek the nomination now, "I want to see a Member of Parliament who shows up, takes an active interest in the community, has the ability to listen to people, understand the concerns of this area, take those concerns back to Ottawa and articulate it properly so that those interests are advanced."

 

McArthur also outlined his priorities, should he win the nomination, "Agriculture is clearly important, grains, livestock, the service sector, those are areas that I intend to do my darndest to try to advance the interests of those areas. But equally important, the knowledge economy of Lethbridge is something that we need to focus on, take a look at the university, the college, the research station, the hospital."

 

Current Lethbridge MP Jim Hillyer was the other candidate to put his name forward, confirming in a news release, that he will run.

 

No word yet from the party on when that vote will happen. The next Federal election is set for October of 2015.
