LETTER: Thanks Randy

Moving from Mission to Ottawa to attend university, I had the privilege of interning and working with Mr. Kamp .

In light of Randy Kamp, MP for Pitt Meadows – Maple Ridge – Mission, not seeking another term in Parliament, I thought it would be appropriate to thank him for representing us in Ottawa for the past 11 years.

Over this time, he has become one of the longest-serving parliamentary secretaries in Canadian history and an advocate for many important issues, both at the local level and federally.

Moving from Mission to Ottawa to attend university, I had the privilege of interning and working with Mr. Kamp in his parliamentary office. Aside from being one the kindest and funniest people I’ve worked with, Mr. Kamp is known for his commonsensical approach to politics, his humility, and his passion for serving his constituents.

I appreciated that he wanted me get the most out of my work and internship experience. I credit his efforts to bring me to meetings and task me with interesting, substantive work for my professional and academic development and high regard for Parliament.

Mr. Kamp, it has been an honour to work with and learn from you. You’ve left big shoes for your successor to fill. I extend my greatest and most sincere thanks for all you’ve done.
