Campbell River resident Diane Hoffmann is the BC Conservative candidate for the Comox Valley in the May 14 B.C. election, party leader John Cummins announced Thursday.

Hoffmann, Quebec-born and bilingual, Hoffman moved to British Columbia in 2001.

She is a student of theology, and earned bachelor’s and master’s degrees from Canadian Christian College and School of Theological Studies in Toronto, Ontario. Hoffman later acquired a PhD in Theology (with an emphasis on Jewish History) from Christian Bible College in Rocky Mount, N.C.

More recently, she obtained a designation as a certified professional consultant on Aging.

She has worked for the past 30 years in small business and project management, and has authored several books, e-books and articles. Hoffman and her husband Harold have been married for 47 years.

Cummins announced the names of six other candidates Thursday.

“I am incredibly impressed with our growing roster of BC Conservative candidates,” said Cummins. “Today’s announcement includes two women, two accountants and all are business owners.

“It is increasingly evident that our candidates represent a broad cross-section of everyday, working British Columbians — and all of them will be exemplary representatives for their constituents in the legislative assembly.”

Other candidates announced so far are Don McRae (Liberal), Kassandra Dycke (NDP) and Chris Aikman (Green).
