LANGLEY B.C. – The B.C. Green Party is pleased to announce the nomination of its candidate for Langley, Elizabeth Walker. Walker is a small business owner working as a graphic designer. Previously she worked in the airline industry as an Emergency Procedures Instructor for pilots and crew members.
“This past year I have seen how politics can radically change our world,” said Walker. “When my youngest son, Paul, became passionate about the Green Party, volunteering in two elections, our house became filled with debate and discussion on politics. He inspired me to put my name forth as the B.C. Greens candidate for Langley. I’m not a politician. I'm a responsive and compassionate small business owner motivated to work each day to ensure the needs of our community are understood and are accommodated fairly and effectively. My key passions include education, clean energy, the environment and building strong communities.”
Andrew Weaver, leader of the B.C. Green Party, welcomed Walker’s nomination.
“I’m delighted Elizabeth has stepped forward to earn the vote of Langley’s vibrant community,” said Weaver. “Her dedication to her community is evident in her volunteer work. She understands that sustainability includes investing in education, as well as clean energy and the environment, so that B.C. will be continue to be the best place in the world to live for generations to come. Elizabeth will make a fantastic MLA for Langley and I am thrilled to have her on the B.C. Greens team.”
