On Tuesday, Dec. 3, Penticton resident and Real Estate Agent, Marshall Neufeld, officially announced that he is seeking the Conservative nomination in the new federal riding of South Okanagan West Kootenay.

“My primary reason for running is out of a sense of service. Service has always been important to me,” said Neufeld, who sat for two terms on the National Council of the Conservative Party of Canada and is Past President of the local Conservative riding association.

Neufeld is also the former Senior Parliamentary Assistant in Ottawa to the Hon. Stockwell Day, who expressed his support of Marshall by stating “The people of South Okanagan West Kootenay would be well served by having Marshall as their representative.”

Neufeld told over 70 supporters gathered in Penticton, “I am running not only to be your Conservative nominee in the next federal election but also to become the South Okanagan West Kootenay’s Member of Parliament.”

For the last five years, Marshall has been a Real Estate Agent in Penticton, in partnership with his father Chuck Neufeld.

Born and raised in Penticton, Marshall has been an active member of the community since his teenage years, volunteering with local causes, and raising money. He has served as the Vice Chair of the Penticton Christian School Board.

While working on Parliament Hill, Neufeld experienced first-hand how much good can be achieved through politics – whether implementing a large scale project for the benefit of many people, or defending basic economic principles of low taxes, free trade and a fair and open field for competition.

“Let there be no misunderstanding, this riding will not be a guaranteed seat for any of the three main parties, the Conservatives, the NDP or the Liberals under Justin Trudeau. There will be a real race here in the next election. It is our job – the members of the Conservative Party of Canada in South Okanagan West Kootenay – to ensure this seat is Conservative after the next election,” concluded Neufeld.
