UPDATED: Kootenay West candidate has new campaign manager

Jim Postnikoff has issued a statement on the change in campaign manager.

The BC Liberal Party announced Shoreacres resident Jim Postnikoff will be their candidate in Kootenay West for the upcoming provincial election on May 14.

UPDATE: We can now confirm that Jesse Postnikoff will be assuming the role as campaign manager after receiving this statement from Jim Postnikoff:

“Yesterday I accepted the resignation of my campaign manager, Meagan Salekin. Meagan will step away from the campaign for personal reasons. Meagan is an extremely talented individual, who has done a tremendous job on my behalf and I hate to lose her. Meagan remains a supporter of the party and the campaign. In her absence my new campaign manager Jesse Postnikoff will be assuming the role as we move forward in the campaign for keeping B.C. strong.”


BC Liberal Party candidate for Kootenay West, Jim Postnikoff, has a new campaign manager less than a week after the writ was dropped for the general election.

In a brief Facebook message sent to the Castlegar News Sunday, April 21, Meagan O’Connor Salekin wrote, “I’ve stepped away from Jim’s campaign. If you need contact info for him, let me know.”

Reached by telephone Sunday afternoon, Postnikoff, who has yet to announce the opening or telephone number of a campaign office, said more information would be coming soon.

“I definitely have a new campaign manager and we’re preparing a  statement shortly to send out to everybody,” said Postnikoff.

We will have further details as they become available.
