D’Eith announces nomination for Maple Ridge – Mission BC NDP candidacy

A man who ran as the federal NDP candidate in the 2014 election, and currently serves on the Maple Ridge – Pitt Meadows Arts Council, has announced his nomination for Maple Ridge – Mission BC NDP candidacy in next year’s provincial contest.

“It is time for change in Maple Ridge – Mission and I hope to be part of that change,” said Bob D’Eith. “I worked hard during the federal election to bring change in Canada and I am ready to redouble my efforts to bring much needed change in British Columbia.”

D’Eith will be seeking the candidacy for the BC NDP in the Maple Ridge-Mission constituency to run in the May 2017 provincial election in British Columbia.

“For far too long, the BC Liberal government has supported large corporate interests to the detriment of the middle-class and those in need in BC,” said D’Eith. “I hope to become MLA for Maple Ridge – Mission, working with John Horgan and the BC NDP, to fight for education, health care, the environment, affordable housing, well-paying jobs, small business and the arts while ensuring that we take care of those people in our community most in need.”

D’Eith was the federal candidate for the Pitt Meadows – Maple Ridge NDP during the recent federal election in a very close three-way race. D’Eith was the Executive Director of Music BC for 14 years and currently serves on the Maple Ridge – Pitt Meadows Arts Council.

The BC NDP candidacy meeting has not been set at this time.
