Pavan Bahia will run for the Richmond-Queensborough riding for BC United in the provincial election.

BC United announced on Friday Pavan Bahia will be its candidate for the Richmond-Queensborough riding in the upcoming fall provincial election.

The seat is currently held by BC NDP MLA Aman Singh.

Bahia, a Richmond resident, has worked as the chief of staff for a member of Parliament and a volunteer soccer coach in Richmond. He currently lives in Richmond-Queenborough with his wife, Satinder.

“Pavan Bahia’s dedication to his community through his work in the public service and active volunteering means he has the first-hand experience to fight for the priorities of the people of Richmond-Queensborough in Victoria,” said Kevin Falcon, BC United leader, in a press release.

Bahia’s approach towards identifying public policy issues and fostering relationships between government and communities has allowed him to accomplish several important initiatives, including at-risk youth, public safety, mental health and addictions, immigration and sports, according to a BC United statement.

“I am humbled to have the opportunity to earn the right to represent our community and advocate for our residents every day,” said Bahia.

Jas Johal, the previous MLA for Richmond-Queensborough and a member of BC United (previously the BC Liberal Party), lost his seat to Singh in the 2020 provincial election.

BC United has announced several candidates recently as it prepares for the election scheduled for October 2024.
