Tyler Nesbitt successful in Skeena - Bulkley Valley nomination bid

MaryAnn Freeman and Tyler Nesbitt are competing for the federal Conservative nomination for the Skeena-Bulkley Valley riding.

Tyler Nesbitt of Terrace has been chosen as the Conservative Party of Canada’s candidate for the Skeena – Bulkley Valley riding for this fall’s federal election.

Nesbitt defeated another Terrace resident, MaryAnn Freeman.

Voting took place May 23 and May 24 through a mobile poll which stopped in communities throughout the riding before concluding in Terrace last night.

Candidates had a chance to speak and party members to ask questions at each stop.

“We had an excellent turn out, much greater than anticipated at all voting polls,” said riding association Cathy Lindseth of the two-day vote.

Nesbitt is a manager with Nechako Northcoast, the company with the provincial road and bridge maintenance contract in the area.

He was born in Prince Rupert and has lived in Terrace since 2009.

Nesbitt has described himself as a “compassionate Conservative” and has stressed job creation as a key part of his campaign platform.
