The B.C. Liberals have acclaimed MLA Scott Hamilton as their candidate for Delta North in next spring’s provincial election.
“North Delta has been my family’s home for over 30 years now, and I’m blessed to have the opportunity to represent such a terrific community,” said Hamilton. “I’m running again to ensure that the solid economic foundation created by our government continues to grow and strengthen for our children’s future."
Hamilton currently serves as chair of the select standing committee on finance and government services. His committee tours the province to directly meet and engage with local groups to help shape the province’s budget priorities.
Hamilton was also involved in the passage of the government’s Guide Dog and Service Dog Act earlier this year.
Prior to being elected to the legislature in 2013, Hamilton served as a Delta councillor for 12 years after serving as a parks, recreation and culture commissioner.
The provincial election will take place on May 9.
