I would like to express heartfelt thanks to them for their confidence in electing me.

On their behalf, I will do my very best to represent them in Victoria. In the months leading up to the election, I spoke to many at their doorsteps and heard clearly their number one concern: ensuring we keep B.C.`s economy strong.

I will work as part of the BC Liberal team towards delivering on this priority, and others, for the consitiuents of Richmond-Steveston.

To the staff and many volunteers who came forward to assist with my campaign, I say a big thank you! We couldn`t have succeeded without you. Many of you spent hundreds of hours contributing to the campaign and I sincerely thank each of you.

To my fellow elected Richmond BC Liberal candidates, Linda Reid and Teresa Wat: Congratulations!

I look forward to working with you as a team to advance issues of importance to our community.

To the other candidates from the other parties who ran in Richmond Steveston, I thank you for participating in the democratic process. Our community and province are the better for it.

John Yap MLA-elect
