WHITEHORSE – Jeanie Dendys has been acclaimed in Mountainview and will be the Yukon Liberal candidate in the riding. The other contender for the nomination, Mike Gladish, withdrew from the nomination process prior to the nomination meeting that took place on August 2, 2016 at Mt McIntyre Rec Centre. Both Dendys and Gladish were active in recruiting members to the Yukon Liberal party, with a combined total of more than 250 people signed up to support their candidacy.
Mike Gladish said: “In the spirit of party unity, I decided that a contested nomination in Mountainview was not in the best interests of the residents of the riding or the prospects of the party. I spoke to Jeanie Dendys about my decision, and she was gracious in accepting my support.”
Jeanie Dendys said: “I am grateful for the strong support received from Mike Gladish and the many constituents engaged in the nomination process. People want change and a renewal of the Yukon Government way of doing business. I look forward to working with Mike Gladish and my other Liberal colleagues and supporters to win the election and be part of building a new government capable of harnessing innovation to create opportunities for all Yukon people.”Read more
