Extremely proud to call our Liberal campaign in Cowichan-Malahat-Langford a success. When Luke Krayenhoff became the candidate, with 3 weeks to go until the election, I was brought on board as Campaign Manager to helm an electoral endeavour with no funds, no time, and hardly any volunteers.
In 21 days, we took the Liberals from being in a distant 4th place with a mere 6% of the vote in 2011 to 2nd place with 24% of the vote. A 300% increase is something to be proud of, and a performance worth celebrating alongside the new Liberal majority government.
Thank you to those few volunteers who stuck with us despite the momentous uphill battle that we faced together. In the end, it is your dedication to the party that prevailed, and it was reflected in Monday’s election results. I have no doubts that next time, building upon this terrific base, we will send a Liberal from Vancouver Island to Parliament!
