Letter: Watts next, Dianne?

Congratulations to all Surrey candidates who won a trip to Ottawa.

To the editor;

Congratulations to all Surrey candidates who won a trip to Ottawa, as our representatives in the House of Commons. A special thanks to Dianne Watts; through sheer star power, she was able to overcome the Red Tide, and Judy Higginbotham, a well-known name in Surrey, in itself, by saving one Conservative seat for Surrey.

I know that Dianne Watts is too politically smart to mention it at this time.

There will soon be room at the top of the Conservative Party, as official opposition party leader, and Dianne Watts, with her fat resume, as Surrey councillor and three landslide victories as Mayor of Surrey, would certainly fill this bill.

I hope she throws her hat in the ring, one more time.

Fred Perry
