Re: Letter to the editor from Eric Kozak Record, April 25).
Yes, Mr. Kozak, I hear you, and I’m trying to reach you.
Let me introduce myself. I’m your Comox Valley BC Conservative candidate, Diane Hoffmann.
I’m running as a candidate because I’ve been hearing a lot of people say that they have no choice in the election other than what’s been available for the past 20 years — and I felt the same way.
I’m not a politician, I’m an average citizen who decided to take up my responsibility rather than just complain about the way things are.
We have a strong leader, John Cummins, who’s been in government for 18 years, and has proven to be a fighter for the people of British Columbia. He’s been a teacher, a construction worker, a fisherman and he understands the issues and concerns of the people.
The BC Conservative Party is for smaller and smarter government — supporting fair and low taxes, balancing the budget, creating high-paying jobs for British Columbians and standing up for the people of British Columbia.
We are not affiliated with the federal Conservatives; we are British Columbia Conservatives.
And vote-splitting is a myth. If all the people who didn’t vote because there was no choice, and all those who are not happy with our current and previous governments go out and vote, we will win the vote. It’s up to the voters.
I’m here to serve the people of the Comox Valley doing Iong-term planning, not political planning.
