Pauline Stevenson will officially announce her intentions to seek the BC Liberal nomination for the Comox Valley at a press conference this morning.

MLA Don McRae will be stepping down from provincial politics when his term ends next year.

Stevenson is the owner and operator of Excel Career College, which she founded in Courtenay, 27 years ago. She is also a founding member and past president of the Women’s Business Network, and a 20-year member of the Courtenay Rotary Club.

“With over 27 years of working from the other side of the political desk, I have invaluable experience and insight and have fostered many excellent governmental relationships,” said Stevenson in a press release. “Coming from a perspective of working with the government as opposed to ‘for’ or ‘against’ the government has left me with no political baggage to overcome.”

Stevenson is the fourth person to enter the nomination race. Comox Mayor Paul Ives, former 19 Wing base commander Jim Benninger and  Courtenay resident Connor Gibson have already declared their intentions.
