O’Mahony worked hard through recent election

Campaign manager thanks supporters

I was the Campaign Manager for Gwen O’Mahony, your candidate for the New Democratic Party in the past Federal election. Gwen has asked me to express her appreciation for the positive support that she received in that campaign. As you know, Gwen received over 12,600 votes-a record number for any female politician in Chilliwack and a strong increase over the NDP votes in 2008.

You may know that she personally knocked on over 10,000 doors in the year leading up to election day on May 2nd. She met many people everywhere who were specifically interested in meeting her and discussing issues that were import to them.

As well in thanking all those people who supported her, she wishes to thank the Chilliwack Progress, Robert Freeman and others at the paper who did an excellent and thorough job of covering the campaign.

There were nine public campaign events and Gwen was the ONLY candidate to attend all nine.

As a result of Gwen’s tireless efforts, she was successful in leading the NDP support to record levels. We also realize that much more work remains to be done.

I believe that Gwen has proven herself to the community to be a tireless and dedicated person who deserves to be elected. This community needs such a person to represent it in higher levels of government. I hope that she will run again as a candidate for Chilliwack. Again, thanks goes out to all supporters and we hope to see you soon in the future.
