The British Columbia Conservative Party is pleased to announce its second official candidate in the 2017 election is Quesnel school trustee Tony Goulet.

“The recruitment of a candidate with such commitment and talent as Tony has is another sign that the B.C. Conservative Party intends to be competitive in numerous constituencies around the province,” said Party president Corbin Mitchell.

Goulet is Executive Director of the Quesnel Tillicum Society (Friendship Centre) and President of the North Cariboo Metis Association based in Quesnel. He also owns Goulet Enterprises Ltd., a business that has a contract to deliver bread in the Quesnel area. He also is active in the community and volunteers his time on many organizations and committees.

“We are heartened that such a quality candidate as Tony is stepping forward for our Party to represent the people of Quesnel, Hixon, Wells, Likely, Horsefly and the area just north of Williams Lake,” said Mitchell, noting that Tony and his family are long time residents. He and his wife Lark have two children, Samuel 15 and Nicholas 13.

“Tony is another candidate who is exactly the type of person needed so badly now in B.C. politics,” said Mitchell, who on Monday announced the endorsement of health care specialist Leah McCulloch in Courtenay-Comox.

“British Columbia needs more MLAs who will serve the interests of their constituents and communities first and not let themselves be dictated to by party bosses,” said Mitchell, emphasizing that the B.C. Conservative Party takes pride in its community-based roots.

Tony was first elected to the School Board in a by-election in April 2004, was re-elected in November 2005 and has been a Trustee ever since. He was born and raised in Quesnel and graduated from Correlieu Secondary School in 1991. He attended Trend Business College in Vancouver and received a diploma in Business Information Management. He also attended Langara College in Vancouver and took the first year of a Real Estate Appraisal course.

“I’m proud and honoured to represent the B.C. Conservatives as a party that puts honesty, integrity and service to constituents as its top priorities,” said Goulet. “My whole career has involved serving community interests first and now I’d like to carry that work on into the Legislature in Victoria,” he said, noting that his experience is well-suited to bringing constituents’ concerns to the attention of the provincial government.
