Ramesh Ferris is taking a second shot at becoming a Liberal candidate this territorial election.
Ferris, who lost his bid to run in Whitehorse West this week, says he now plans to try for the job in Porter Creek North.
“I will not give up on Yukon’s people, and I’m determined to stand up for every Yukoner everywhere as a potential Liberal MLA,” the polio survivor and accessibility advocate said in a press release.
Ferris made the official announcement today in front of his childhood home in Riverdale. That’s the same place he first announced plans to try for the candidacy in Whitehorse West.
Former journalist Richard Mostyn came away with that win.
So far no one else has announced plans to run for the Liberal spot in Porter Creek North. No date has been set for a nomination meeting.
The position is current held by Yukon Party Education Minister Doug Graham. Graham won nearly 50 per cent of the votes in the 2011 territorial election.
