Chad Thompson is running for the BC Conservative Party.

Chad Thompson joined the B.C. election race last week as a BC Conservative in the Maple Ridge-Mission riding.

As a Langley resident, Thompson says he has a lot to learn about the two communities, but put his name forward because he didn’t want to see the region unrepresented by his party.

“I have a passion for politics and am familiar with the interests of all British Columbians,” noted Thompson. “I am concerned about how the province is being run at this time.”

Thompson says he will fight for seniors, families, and children, and notes the cost of living is one of the most significant issues the province is facing.

Thompson has been busy speaking with residents and has learned many are not content with the current West Coast Express services.

Thompson is an entrepreneur with an automotive background.

He has completed courses in management and mediation/negotiations.

He is currently working on starting a small business which identifies and promotes digital recordings of personal items as well as engraved items to help police locate them if they are lost or stolen.

In his spare time, Thompson enjoys spending time outdoors and knows the recreational opportunities available in Mission and Maple Ridge.
