Candidate attends

Conservative Mel Arnold says he will be at several all candidates forums

After concerns about not attending  some forums, a North Okanagan-Shuswap candidate is expanding his presence.

Conservative Mel Arnold says he will be at several all candidates forums in addition to the ones he is already scheduled to attend.

“Due to a hectic schedule that includes business as well as political demands, I had originally planned to attend a few select forums,” he said.

“However, I believe citizens across the North Okanagan-Shuswap deserve as many chances as possible to meet their candidates, so I have altered my plans to include as many forums as possible.”

Previously scheduled to attend five forums, including the Greater Vernon Chamber of Commerce, Vernon JCI, Salmon Arm chamber, Salmon Arm Retired Persons, and Enderby Chamber of Commerce, Arnold has agreed to attend events hosted by the  Armstrong chamber, Lumby chamber, Sorrento chamber and the Vernon Performing Arts Centre.

He is also awaiting confirmation from two more.
