Greens open nomination contest
(Barrie, ON) – The Barrie Green Party has announced that nominations are open for a candidate to represent the Green Party of Ontario in the 2011 provincial election. Members of the public are asked to seriously consider whether they or someone they know would make a good candidate and contact the Party before nominations close on January 23rd. Past provincial candidate Erich Jacoby-Hawkins said “we have a couple of people interested in the position, but are always open to new entrants who want to spread Green values in the community.” Jacoby-Hawkins is nominated to be the Greens’ federal candidate and is preparing for the next federal election.
The Green Party of Ontario has been steadily building strength under Mike Schreiner, who is very actively engaged with the public into his second year as party leader. Schreiner attends the Legislature at Queen’s Park and will be running in the neighbouring Simcoe-Grey riding in October.
The Green Party of Canada and leader Elizabeth May are also engaging with Canadians and
continue to provide a Green perspective on national and international issues. May represented Canadian Greens at the recent Cancun climate conference and the party continues to mobilize for a possible federal election in the near future.
Barrie Green Party executive team positions are open for the 2011 year and will be voted in at the Annual General Meeting taking place Sunday, January 9th from 2 – 4 pm at the Barrie Public Library. Please contact CEO@BarrieGreens.ca by Dec. 31 if you or someone you know may be interested in taking part.
