McCune selected to represent the BC United in Salmon Arm-Shuswap riding for 2024 provincial election

BC United picks new Greg

BC United members in the Salmon Arm-Shuswap riding have chosen a new Greg to carry their banner in the upcoming provincial election.

Members of the party, which was known as the BC Liberals until last year, chose former Enderby mayor Greg McCune at a candidate selection meeting on Saturday.

McCune was competing for the nomination against RDNO director fAlyssa Hopkins and former Salmon Arm-Shuswap riding association president Linda Hawes.

Longtime Salmon Arm-Shuswap MLA Greg Kyllo announced he would not be running for re-election last year.

In a Facebook post Kyllo congratulated McCune on winning the nomination.

“With a wealth of experience in entrepreneurship and municipal governance, Greg is ready to bring his passion and expertise to the provincial stage,” Kyllo said.

“Congratulations Greg McCune and thank you Linda Hawes and Allysa Hopkins for putting your names forward and being part of the process.”

McCune thanked his family and supporters in a Facebook post of his own.

“Over the past few days, I have been overwhelmed with gratitude,” McCune said.

“I'd like to thank each member of the Salmon Arm-Shuswap riding who took the time to come out and vote on Saturday and to those who placed their confidence in me. ... I am humbled and honoured.”

The 2024 provincial election is scheduled for October 19.
