There are now two candidates officially running to be MLA of Peace River North after Dan Davies announced his bid for re-election at his campaign launch party on September 25. He joins B.C. Conservative Party leader Trevor Bolin, who announced his campaign on September 23.
Davies announced his campaign in front of 15 socially-distanced supporters and family matters at his campaign office.
"This election is about who can best deliver results," Davies said. He said with his experience as MLA, on Fort St. John City Council, and his time spent in the oil and gas industry, and combined together with the B.C. Liberals they are a team that can lead the province into economic recovery.
"This snap election has only been called for one purpose and that is purely self serving for John Horgan. John Horgan sees the numbers that have put him ahead, and he has put aside everything he has stood for the past several years, and that's caring for people, to take advantage of the polling numbers," said Davies.
Introducing Davies was former Canadian Senator and MLA Richard Neufeld.
This is an important election in B.C., we need to elect Andrew Wilkinson to a majority government to get British Columbia back on track," said Neufeld, saying that the riding can't afford to split the vote with other parties. He said Davies' three and a half years of experience as an MLA make him the right choice to represent the riding.
"We have a path forward to return the economy, to strengthen the economoy, and to put the power back with the people where it needs to be," said Davies.
The 2020 B.C. election is set for October 24.
