Mission – Tony Luck and Simon Gibson, two city councillors from neighbouring communities, will go head-to-head for the BC Liberal Party’s nomination in Abbotsford-Mission, the Party has announced today.

Tony Luck, a City Councillor with the District of Mission, has lived in Abbotsford and Mission for the past 30 years. He currently works as a financial consultant.

“We need to ensure that we keep British Columbia’s economy on the right track, and I know the BC Liberals are the best party to do that,” said Luck. “I want to run for the BC Liberals in Abbotsford-Mission because I believe in the direction of this government under Premier Christy Clark.”

Simon Gibson has served on the Abbotsford City Council for 30 years, and he teaches at the School of Business at the University of the Fraser Valley.

“I want to work with Premier Christy Clark to create an economic climate for job creation in our province,” said Gibson. “I’m confident that I have the skills and experience needed to be a strong representative for Abbotsford-Mission.”

Today’s news comes on the heels of yesterday’s announcement that five strong candidates will compete for the BC Liberal nomination in Shuswap. The Party has called a candidate selection meeting in Abbotsford-Mission for December 6th at the Best Western Mission City Lodge.
