Westside-Kelowna MLA Ben Stewart fought off tears as he announced his decision to step aside in order to allow Premier Christy Clark to run for the riding in a byelection. - Capital News file

Letter: Yes, we want Ben Stewart back

Kelowna - We benefitted from his foresight. Think about it

To the editor:

In response to the letter asking if we want Ben Stewart back (Capital News, Friday, Aug. 4).

Yes we do want Ben Stewart back.

He sacrificed his MLA position to give us Christy Clark as our riding coupled with the fact she was also the Premier of B.C.

We benefitted from his foresight. Think about it.

It is evident Ben Stewart has more than proven himself in the past, thusly his representation in our future is unlimited.

I am certain Point Grey regrets their decision.
