Earlier, we reported Premier Christy Clark's former provincial Liberal leadership campaign co-chair Sharon White is campaign to be the party's president. Now, Public Eye has learned former North Coast MLA Bill Belsey is running for to be vice-president. Speaking with Public Eye, Mr. Belsey said, "I think what's gone on in the past has been excellent and I want to continue to build on that," adding that he can bring a "rural perspective" to the party's executive meetings. Current vice-president Martin MacLachlan isn't seeking re-election at the Liberals' upcoming biennial meeting, which will take place in Penticton later this month.
