KELOWNA – A local Okanagan businessman is one of four people vying for the leadership of the B.C. Conservative Party.
Konrad Pimiskern is originally from Horseshoe Bay but moved to Kelowna with his wife and children in 2000. A Washington State University football player, Pimiskern graduated with a B.BA in Finance.
“As a financial advisor, I have worked intimately with hundreds of families for over 20 years,” his bio states on the B.C. Conservatives website. “My work has given me tremendous insight into what real people are thinking and experiencing in the real world.”
With only a few weeks before the leadership convention Sept. 17, Pimiskern has arranged a series of Skype Town Hall Meetings each weekday at 10 a.m. and 7 p.m.
“From the comfort of your own computer you will have the opportunity to go face to face with me, ask questions and learn how I conduct myself as a leader.”
Other names on the list include Chloe Ellis of New Westminster, Dan Brooks of Vanderhoof and Dr. Jay Cross of Vancouver.
