(Barrie) The members of the Barrie Green Party have chosen Andrew Miller to be their candidate for the 2011 Ontario election to be held October 6.
Miller is new to politics, but has been very active in the local community with projects related to all aspects of sustainability, such as conservation, alternative energy, local sustainable food, and social justice. Having already harvested 20,000 pounds of fresh produce from his farm to donate to local food banks, Miller is now developing a set of community gardens within Barrie where families can grow their own food.
“I’m very humbled to have been chosen to represent Barrie,” Miller said at the nomination meeting at Moonsoon Lounge, “because I stand behind Green Party values wholeheartedly”.
Miller has declared that he is “in it to win it” and will be putting a full effort into earning Barrie’s seat at the Legislature in Queen’s Park. In the past two decades, three different parties have held that seat, and Miller is eager to add a fourth. “I see evidence everywhere that Barrie is a very green-conscious community, and I believe I can turn that support into political victory,” he declared.
Green Party of Ontario leader Mike Schreiner spoke at the nomination, and was impressed by the level of Green support shown. “I’m thrilled to see that Barrie has added such a strong champion to bring a sensible green voice to Queen’s Park,” he announced. “Barrie has a committed Green team that is strengthening the community, and I pledge to be here to help Andrew – knocking on doors, hauling e-waste, collecting food and clothing, or whatever else the Greens take on in this community,” he added, referring to the Barrie Greens’ annual Earth Hour Super-drive.
