KELOWNA - The B.C. Conservative Party has nominated a candidate in the riding of Kelowna-Mission for the upcoming provincial election.

Chuck Hardy ran for Kelowna mayor in the last municipal election in 2014 and was an employee of the City of Kelowna for 22 years.

“I come from a background in which relationship-building is key,” Hardy says in a media release. “My purpose in life has been to always focus on being of service to others and that will continue to be the cornerstone of my work.”

Hardy has volunteered with the International Order of Job’s Daughters for a number of years, as well as helping to build and fund social housing projects in Mexico, according to the release. Additionally, he is a hunting safety and safe handling of firearms instructor.

“I feel a responsibility to do what is best for this great area, this great province and our great country,” Hardy says. “We have to start showing better respect for the workers of our province without whom it would not be as successful as it is today.”

So far, Hardy is running against B.C. Liberal incumbent Steve Thomson and B.C. Green Party candidate Rainer Wilkins. The N.D.P. has yet to announce a candidate for the Kelowna-Mission electoral area.

The provincial election is on May 7.
