Lumby's Janet Green could become the deputy leader of the B.C. Conservatives if Rick Peterson becomes leader.

Lumby resident pursues role in provincial politics

Rick Peterson has stated that he will name Janet Green as deputy leader if he wins the B.C. Conservative leadership April 11.

A Lumby resident could play a high-profile role in provincial politics.

Rick Peterson has stated that he will name Janet Green as deputy leader if he wins the B.C. Conservative leadership April 11.

“Janet Green is an outstanding woman with a strong understanding of health care issues, a deep commitment to conservative policies and values, and a passion for building the B.C. Conservative Party,” said Peterson.

“ I couldn’t be happier to have Janet work with me for the next five months of this leadership campaign, and as deputy leader after April 11 if we win a mandate from B.C. Conservative members.”

Green moved to Lumby in 2005 after a 25-year career in administrative positions with Vancouver General Hospital and the Vancouver Coastal Health Authority.

She served a term on Lumby council and was  recently elected to the B.C. Conservative board as a director-at-large.

“I’m supporting Rick for party leader because he has the knowledge and experience we need to help turn this province around,” said Green.

“There’s too much waste in the Christy Clark government, too little accountability, and too many of our young men and women leaving B.C. for jobs in Alberta. Everyone I meet who knows Rick speaks about his commitment and his ability to deliver results – and that’s exactly what B.C. Conservatives are looking for today.”
