A Salmon Arm woman has announced her intention to seek the Liberal nomination in the federal Okanagan-Shuswap riding.

Cindy Derkaz has filled out her nomination papers and mailed them to Ottawa. However, before she is officially declared a candidate in the 2015 election, she must be vetted by the Liberal Party.

Derkaz, who was raised in Salmon Arm, is probably most well-known recently for her former role as president of the Shuswap Community Foundation.

She has had much involvement with non-profits and she practised law for many years.

Derkaz is running because: “Over the last three or four years, I’ve become increasingly concerned about the direction the country is taking under the Harper Conservative government and I feel it’s time to get involved and offer a change.”

No one else has announced their intention to run for the federal Liberal Party in the riding and the candidate nomination meeting has not been scheduled yet.
