Nelson –Michelle Mungall’s tenacity and tact in standing up for Kootenay priorities has not gone unnoticed. On Friday, John Horgan, the new Leader of the Official Opposition, named Mungall Deputy House Leader.
“Our team has the benefit of tremendous energy and innovation from many young MLAs,” said Horgan. “Michelle Mungall is a young leader with a strong record of standing up to the B.C. Liberals for policies that hurt hard-working British Columbians.”
As Deputy House Leader, Mungall will work with the House Leader, Port Coquitlam MLA Mike Farnworth to manage the strategies and activities of the Official Opposition during legislative sessions. Both Farnworth and Mungall are known for their no holds barred approach to challenging BC Liberal policies that are bad for the province, such as breaking up of the ALR and the clawback of child support payments.
Mungall, who will continue to serve as Opposition Critic for Social Development, is prepared for her new challenge. “I am thrilled to be adding this new role to my responsibilities and that the leader has shown such confidence in me. I look forward to working closely with one of our best MLAs, Mike Farnworth as we provide leadership to our team in the Legislature.”
