KAMLOOPS — While the provincial election is still months away, another contender has thrown her name into the mix for the May 2017 election.

Former Kamloops City Councillor Nancy Bepple will be seeking the NDP nomination in the Kamloops-South Thompson riding.

Bepple has scheduled a news conference for Tuesday, August 30 to lay out her agenda.

Bepple sat on Kamloops council from 2008 to 2014, resigning near the end of her second term for health reasons.

She ran for council again in fall of 2014, but was unsuccessful.

BC Liberal MLA Todd Stone told CFJC Today in May that he will be seeking another term.

Meantime, BC Liberal MLA Terry Lake has not revealed whether he will run again in Kamloops-North Thompson.

Earlier this week Barb Nederpel was announced as the NDP candidate for the Kamloops-North Thompson riding.
