Richard Lee to seek fourth term in Burnaby North
Richard Lee will be seeking his fourth consecutive term as MLA for Burnaby North.
The BC Liberal Party confirmed on Thursday, Lee will be on the ballot for the party in 2013 after no others came forward to seek the nomination. Lee will be acclaimed by the riding Aug. 26.
Lee was previously elected in 2001, 2005 and 2009. In addition to his constituency duties, he is currently serving as parliamentary secretary for Asia-Pacific.
"I am focused on representing my constituents here in Burnaby North. Come election time, I think British Columbians will look at our record in government and recognize that they're much better off now than they were in 2001," said Lee in the release.
He will face anti-HST organizer Janet Routledge who was declared by the New Democratic Party to be its candidate more than a year ago.
