The B.C. Green Party has officially announced the nomination of its candidate for Columbia River-Revelstoke, Samson Boyer. Boyer works in the hospitality and tourism industry and is a beekeeper.
“Having lived in this area for most of my life I am so proud to call the Kootenays home,” said Boyer.
“There is such potential and every day I see what people are capable of achieving in this region. I want to help ensure that there is only more opportunity available. I would like to promote a diversified economy and continue to encourage innovation and technology in the pursuit of increasingly sustainable industry and opportunities for well-paying jobs throughout Columbia River-Revelstoke. I believe we need change. It’s with the B.C. Green Party that I see change is possible.”
“We are very fortunate to have Samson on the B.C. Greens team,” Andrew Weaver, leader of the B.C. Green Party, added. “He is a young, dynamic individual with a stake in the future of his community, and knows that B.C. deserves far better than the status quo. His deep roots in the Kootenays and passion for engagement at the community level make him an exceptional candidate for Columbia River-Revelstoke. I am proud to welcome such an enthusiastic person like Samson with a strong, ambitious vision for the future of B.C. to our team.”
