I want to thank family, friends and all of the people that helped me throughout my election campaign. Your support was very much appreciated. I also want to thank all of you who took the time to listen to my ideas and opinions and voted in favour of them. It was rewarding to receive almost five per cent of the vote in this riding (over 10 per cent of the winners vote total) and many individuals encouraged me to continue to promote the changes necessary to restore democracy in our provincial government.
I will continue to voice my concerns on the issues I presented during the campaign as I believe they are for the good of British Columbians. I will press our elected MLA to follow through with the promises made regarding free votes for party members, open government, help for the truly needy, real debt reduction, the Penticton hospital expansion and the fight against GMOs, just to name a few.
I need to thank my wife Pat for encouraging me, my mother Bev Jones for guiding me and my children for allowing me to spend a portion of their inheritance towards something I believe in.
