As the Fall Session gets underway at the B.C. Legislature, BC United Party Leader Kevin Falcon has unveiled Houston Mayor Shane Brienen as the BC United candidate for the Nechako Lakes riding. "Every team needs a mix of experienced and new members, and today I'm thrilled to introduce Mayor Shane Brienen as our newest BC United candidate," Falcon said in a press release. "Shane's unwavering commitment to his community, his family, and his relentless determination to deliver better outcomes for his region make him the ideal voice for the people of Nechako Lakes."

Brienen expressed his dedication to addressing the pressing issues facing the Nechako Lakes region. "As a lifelong resident deeply rooted in Houston and its surrounding communities, I see a clear path towards a brighter future for our region," Brienen declared.

He added, "I firmly believe there are significant opportunities for progress in Nechako Lakes that the current government is not fully capitalizing on. I am determined to work every day to lower the cost of living for local families, strengthen mental health and addiction services, and address the growing healthcare crisis."

Brienen career spans an impressive 17 years of local governance, initially as a Councillor and now in his third consecutive term as Mayor of Houston. Furthermore, Brienen serves as a Director on the Bulkley Nechako Regional District Board, the Northwest Regional Hospital Board, and the Northwest BC Resource Benefits Alliance.
