Public Affairs Professional, Community Volunteer Nigel Elliott Running for Today’s BC Liberals in Vancouver-West End
Independent public affairs professional and community volunteer Nigel Elliott has been nominated as the BC Liberal candidate in Vancouver-West End.
“While the West End is a destination for visitors from around the world, it’s the neighbourhood’s diversity, and in particular its vibrant LGBTQ community that has always made it feel like home to me,” said Elliott. “I’m thrilled to accept the BC Liberal nomination for this riding, and it would be a great honour to serve West End and Coal Harbour residents in the Legislature.”
A former researcher and ministerial aide at the BC Legislature, Elliott has a solid understanding of what it takes to get things done in Victoria. He also worked at a B.C. Crown Corporation, where he focused on connecting local small businesses with opportunities on public infrastructure projects.
A lifelong visual artist and creative writer, Elliott is also a passionate volunteer in the LGBTQ community. He also serves on the board of Dan’s Legacy, a charitable organization that works with at-risk youths.
“As the BC Liberals’ youngest nominated candidate, I am pleased to be running for a party that’s focused on job creation and B.C.’s future,” Elliott added. “With Canada’s strongest economy, only Premier Christy Clark and Today’s BC Liberals have the plan to keep our economy on track so we can continue to invest in the services and infrastructure we all depend on.”
The BC Liberals also confirmed today that addictions expert and neuroscientist Conny Lin will be their candidate in Vancouver-Mount Pleasant. The party has now nominated 71 candidates province-wide.
The provincial election will take place on May 9th, 2017.
