Kelowna’s longest-serving mayor is endorsing Andrew Wilkinson for BC Liberal Leader.
On the eve of a BC Liberal leadership debate to be held in Kelowna on Saturday, Walter Gray is a longtime member of the BC Liberal and Social Credit parties and announced his endorsement today.
“Andrew Wilkinson has solid experience and an enviable track record in and out of government,” said Gray. “Andrew has lived all across the province and understands B.C.’s many regional issues, and most importantly that one size does not necessarily fit all. He understands business and has sweeping knowledge of what a BC Liberal government can do to get our province moving in the right direction.”
Gray was an owner/partner in radio stations at Salmon Arm, Revelstoke, Trail, Nelson and Creston. During his 50-year career in broadcasting, he built and operated three of Kelowna’s radio stations. He served as mayor of Kelowna from 1996 – 2005 and again from 2011 – 2014.
“As a leader within our free-enterprise coalition, Walter’s support shows that we’re on the right track and have the momentum to win this leadership race and the next election,” said Andrew.
Both Todd Stone and Mike De Jong are holding press conference’s in Kelowna today in advance of the leadership debate, which is open to the public Saturday morning at 10 a.m. at the Coast Capri Hotel.
