Conservatives Select Candidate For Rothesay Byelection

Almost 400 Conservatives jamming the Bill McGuire Centre in Renforth to choose Ted Flemming as their candidate for the June 25th provincial byelection in Rothesay.

Flemming, who's 57, is the grandson of former Premier Hugh John Flemming but tells CHSJ News this step wasn't inevitable, even considering his political lineage.
Flemming says he will run on the need for sound fiscal management warning we're headed for an abyss if something isn't done. He charges the Liberals are tax and spenders who created the fiscal mess. 

As for any voter backlash on the charge that former M-L-A Margaret Ann Blaney's appointment as C-E-O of Efficiency NB is nothing more than political patronage, Flemming concedes it will be an issue.
