The BC Conservative Party named its Board of Directors for the Kamloops North Thompson Riding on Saturday, Dec. 11, during a meeting held at the McLure Restaurant.

An interim board of directors was chosen during the gathering to lead the BC Conservatives in the riding of Kamloops North Thompson.

Regional director Alan Forseth commented, “With members stretching across this vast riding from Blue River right through to Kamloops, we’re delighted our board has the same kind of representation.”

Serving as the riding’s first president will be Carl Hagen of Kamloops, while vice president Ron Anderson and secretary Don Corser both hale from Clearwater. Rounding out the board will be treasurer Garvin Wallace of Kamloops, and director at large Beth Ofukany (oh-foe-kuh-knee) also of Kamloops.

Over the weekend, an additional four constituency associations for the BC Conservatives also held founding meetings; they were the three Abbotsford ridings (Abbotsford-Mission, Abbotsford-West and Abbotsford-South), as well as Maple Ridge-Pitt Meadows.
