Five people are now in the running to replace Jay Hill as the Conservative nominee in Prince George-Peace River.
The latest candidate for the Conservative nomination is Tumbler Ridge Councillor Jerrilyn Schembri. In an interview with the Tumbler Ridge News, Schembri says “Jay Hill represented this area fantastically, and I think he set the bar high,” said Schembri, who believes the seat is a particularly important one within the House of Commons. “I think what’s best for the northeast is what’s best for Canada.”
Schembri recently joined the Conservative Party and has been a Councillor in Tumbler Ridge since 2008. She has called the community of Tumbler Ridge home for over 23 years and has volunteered with several groups in the community. For more on Jerrilyn Schembri, visit www.jerrilyn.ca
With Schembri, there are now five people running to replace M.P. Jay Hill as the Conservative Nominee in Prince George-Peace River. The other candidates include Fort St. John City Councillors Dan Davies and Don Irwin, Teacher Bob Zimmer and Prince George City Councillor Cameron Stoltz.
Earlier this month M.P. Jay Hill announced he will step down on October 25th. To date the local Conservative riding association has not said when they will choose their next candidate.
