Denesiuk tosses hat into Liberal ring

Connie Denesiuk is again looking to enter the political game, but this time she has her eye set on the federal level.

The former school board chair and trustee recently announced her intention to seek the liberal nomination for the new South Okanagan West Kootenay riding and in order to run as a candidate in the 2015 federal election.

“Penticton is traditionally a Conservative voting area and the Kootenays is traditionally NDP. But  we are a new riding now,” Denesiuk  said.

“I feel this is an opportunity for people to really have a hard look at where they want to go and who they want to lead. I felt it was a good opportunity to put my name forward and see if I could serve the people of the South Okanagan West Kootenay riding.”
