Richmond: Human and civil rights lawyer and small business owner Aman Singh will seek the nomination for the BC NDP in Richmond—Queensborough to help defeat Christy Clark in May.
“Christy Clark isn’t working for people,” said Singh, at an event announcing his intention to seek the nomination on Wednesday. “Every day people are paying more and getting less. I am proud to put myself forward to help defeat Christy Clark and form a government that works for everyone.”
“Aman Singh has what it takes to build a better BC,” said BC NDP Leader John Horgan. “He has the leadership experience and community connections needed to stand up to Christy Clark. We’re excited he wants to be a part of the BC NDP team in Richmond.”
Jack Trovato, local teacher and former federal NDP candidate is supporting Singh’s bid for Richmond—Queensborough. “Aman will be a strong voice for Richmond in a BC NDP government. I’m proud to be standing with him,” he said.
Born in India and raised in Hong Kong before making Richmond his home with his family, Singh speaks English, Punjabi, Hindi, Urdu and Cantonese; an asset in his work representing clients at home and around the world. A prominent criminal and human rights lawyer, he has worked for people seeking political asylum at Canadian tribunals and has been an advisor to First Nations leaders. As a small business owner, he understands that you don’t need to choose between economic prosperity and social responsibility.
