Michael Ignatieff BC Campaign Team Announces Appointments
Here are 3 of the reasons why I am supporting Mi. and they weren't reasons before I read the latest announcement but reading it has put my mind to rest. Actions speak louder than words and the 3 are top of the hill for me.
Bev Hendrickson -( I put her in the best of my friends category)This woman has the years of practical campaign trenches warfare that is so much a part of her persona.very practical and definitely a person I would want on my team.
Women's Commission Co-ChairMs. Hendrickson is a long-time Liberal and member of the Liberal Party of Canada national executive as the BC-Yukon Representative on the National Women's Liberal Commission. She currently resides in Vernon. In addition to ensuring a strong contingent of BC women delegates support Michael, Bev will help advise Michael on how to increase the participation of women in politics.
Adrienne Cousins - ( excellent choice for a bright articulate and independent person) she is one of a set of twin daughters, known to me as friends of family.More importantly she is definitely on the "to be a future Candidate gromming list. "
Ms. Cousins is currently the Young Liberals of Canada (British Columbia) Policy Chair and a member of the EcoAction BC Public Advisory Committee. Adrienne will help establish a representative and efficient BC policy committee and provide strategic advise to the campaign on health innovation and community services.
Kim Emsley-Leik A few years back when as a YL member setting up an auction; this young woman wasn't afraid to pick up the phone and make personal contact. Another articulate, independant thinker who has a good future as a woman in politics.
Ms. Emsley-Leik was the Liberal Party of Canada (BC) 2004 Volunteer of the Year. She has worked in numerous elections - including recent campaigns in Vancouver-Kingsway and the BC Interior. Kim will be responsible for managing the campaign's complete organizational structure and administration. She will also take on responsibilities to support fundraising and special events.
This is exactly what I mean when I say
P= power, P= politics P= people
