SURREY B.C. – The B.C. Green Party is pleased to announce the nomination of its candidate for Surrey-Newton, Richard Krieger. Krieger has a diverse background in farming, photography, environmental activism and in business with real estate, property management, advertising and entrepreneurism. In 1983, Krieger was one of the founding directors involved in registering the B.C. Green Party as a provincial society, helping create the first Green Party in North America.
“I am running because I believe Surrey-Newton needs a fresh perspective to deal with their unique problems,” said Krieger. “As a person who has achieved much with hard work and creative insights, I feel I can work well with the diverse groups that make up this unique riding. I am pleased and honoured to be the candidate for the B.C. Green Party in the riding of Surrey-Newton, and look forward to serving its citizens as their next MLA. ”
Andrew Weaver, leader of the B.C. Green Party, welcomed Krieger’s nomination.
“I am delighted to welcome Richard to the B.C. Greens team,” said Weaver. “He has a long history of advocating for sustainable solutions in this province. His diverse experience in agriculture, business and environmentalism gives him a unique perspective on the interplay between the economy and the environment. He would be an excellent representative for the people of Surrey-Newton.”
