New president for B.C. Conservative Party
A Port Moody resident and former B.C. Conservative Party politician who ran in a recent byelection in the Port Moody-Coquitlam riding is now party president.
Christine Clarke was given the volunteer post after Al Siebring quit because of his increasing workload and councillor duties.
Clarke was already vice-president, having been elected to the job at the party's annual general meeting in September, and said she expects the new job to keep her very busy.
As well, she said the party is getting ready for next May's provincial election with several tours around the province by party leader John Cummins and nomination meetings in various ridings across B.C.
