MARYANN Freeman is starting her second one-year term as president of the federal Conservative Party’s constituency association for the Skeena – Bulkley Valley riding.

The Terrace resident was chosen at the association’s Sept. 24 annual general meeting held here. The first vice president of the association is Ken Minifie from Kitimat and the second vice president is Cathy Lindseth from Terrace.

Clay Harmon, who was the party’s unsuccessful candidate in this riding in the spring federal election, is the association’s financial agent.

Freeman estimated that 20 people were at the annual general meeting.

“We talked about the election. A lot of us are new people so we talked about what we did and what areas we can improve upon for next time,” she said.

And although the ultimate goal of the Conservative constituency association is to defeat current NDP MP Nathan Cullen, Freeman said it does wish him the best in his run for his party’s leadership.

“Just because we are from a different party doesn’t mean that we can’t wish him good luck as another northerner,” said Freeman.

“If he did win the leadership, he would have a bigger voice for the north. That would be something. There’s no animosity,” she added.
