Fin Donnelly announced today he will seek the nomination in the new ‘Port Moody-Coquitlam’ riding in 2015

COQUITLAM- The Federal Electoral Boundaries Commission Report for the Province of British Columbia was released outlining changes to several ridings, including those within the Tri-Cities and villages of Anmore and Belcarra. The changes will come into effect during the 2015 federal election.

Fin Donnelly announced today he will seek the nomination in the new ‘Port Moody-Coquitlam’ riding in 2015. This new riding incorporates Donnelly’s existing riding boundaries of Coquitlam, and Port Moody will expand by adding all of Port Moody and the Villages of Anmore and Belcarra, while losing New Westminster.

“It is unfortunate the Commission did not take more of the public’s concerns into account when making their decision on the boundary redistribution. However, I am very excited about continuing to represent the communities of Port Moody and Coquitlam where I have lived and worked my entire life,” said Donnelly. ``I look forward to meeting and working with the neighbouring villages of Anmore and Belcarra. I will continue the fight to build healthy, sustainable communities in the area.  I am committed to working together to make a positive difference for everyone in our community”

Donnelly will continue to work with and represent the constituents of his current riding of New Westminster- Coquitlam and Port Moody until the 2015 election is called.

“As the Member of Parliament for New Westminster- Coquitlam and Port Moody I have enjoyed representing the community and constituents of New Westminster and am very grateful for their support over the past four years, said Donnelly”.
