Howard Jampolsky to seek Delta-Richmond East Conservative nomination

Howard Jampolsky has declared he is seeking the Delta-Richmond East federal Conservative nomination about to be vacated by MP John Cummins.

Cummins announced Saturday he won’t seek re-election.

Jampolsky sought the Conservative nomination before. He lost by six votes to Darrell Reid in 2005 and was runner-up to current MP Alice Wong in 2007. He also unsuccessfully tried to win a seat on Richmond council in 2008.

Jampolsky has been actively working on federal and municipal issues for more than 25 years, including the last two years on the Conservative Delta-East Richmond board of directors.

He is a member of the Richmond Airport Noise Advisory Committee as chair,  economic advisory council, the board of variance and is past vice-chair of the Intercultural Advisory Committee.

Jampolsky is the president of the Scadax Group of Companies. The 46 year 0ld is married to Marla, has three children—Marissa, 13, Elise, 10, and Jake, 1—and has lived in Richmond since 1997.

“We are likely facing an unnecessary election pushed on Canadians by the Liberals, NDP and the Bloc Coalition and we need an experienced candidate who is ready to campaign full time the moment the nomination is done,” Jampolsky said in a press release.

According to the Public Eye website, Delta realtor Keith Roy is also looking to seek the nomination for Delta-Richmond East.
