The head of the B.C. Conservatives in the Kamloops-South Thompson riding has endorsed candidate Dan Brooks’ bid for party leader.
Alan Forseth also announced Wednesday that he was on board as Brooks’ campaign manager.
Forseth put his support behind Brooks, who represents the Interior, as opposed to Lower Mainland candidate Rick Peterson because he believes Brooks has the passion to make the party a political contender.
“Dan has the fire in his belly that’s needed to drive the party forward,” he told The Daily News prior to an afternoon press conference.
For his part, Brooks appreciates Forseth’s endorsement, saying he’s not the sort of person to make a decision lightly.
“He’s very well thought out. He never does anything on a whim,” said Brooks, who served with Forseth on the party’s provincial board of directors.
