CAMPBELL RIVER B.C. – The B.C. Green Party is pleased to announce the nomination of its candidate for North Island, Sue Moen. Moen was previously the Executive Director at A Loving Spoonful in Vancouver and has seven years’ experience as a care-team volunteer in the AIDS community. She is currently a non-profit consultant and community worker with the street-engaged populations of Campbell River.
“I am thrilled to accept the nomination as the B.C. Green Party candidate for the North Island,” said Moen. “The six Green Principles have guided my life and decision making for more than a decade and I believe these principles serve our democratic process and can contribute to prosperity and sustainability in our communities. The B.C. Green Party has concrete, achievable solutions to our challenges and policy ideas that can be implemented now to improve our future prospects – as individuals, as families, as communities and nations.”
“It is wonderful to see an immensely qualified and engaged advocate like Sue choosing to stand up for her community in this election,” Andrew Weaver, leader of the B.C. Green Party, added. “From her incredible wealth of experience in the non-profit sector and beyond, it is clear that she is a strong leader with a deep commitment to her community. She has a thorough understanding of the systemic issues so many people in our province face. Her management skills and deep compassion for others make her the ideal candidate to represent the North Island in B.C.’s Legislature.”
