Sicamous Coun. Greg Kyllo has won the nomination to represent the B.C. Liberals in the Shuswap constituency in the spring provincial election.

Kyllo has lived in Sicamous for 34 years and is the president of Twin Anchors Marine Group.

“The past few months have brought great energy to the Shuswap riding,” said Kyllo.

“We had five strong candidates come forward here in Shuswap, and I’m very humbled to have won. Any one of the other four candidates would have been great as well.”

The other individuals seeking the Liberal nomination were Salmon Arm businessman Mel Arnold, former Salmon Arm mayor Marty Bootsma, former Spallumcheen mayor Will Hansma and Salmon Arm businessman Jordan Ross.

Retiring MLA George Abbott believes Kyllo will be a strong representative for Shuswap.

“He is a well-known, respected member of the community, and he will provide great leadership in this area for years to come," said Abbott.
