The Green Party of Vancouver Candidate Screening Committee has reviewed the applications of those looking to run for the Green Party for City Council in the November 2014 election, and has endorsed the applications of three very strong nominees: our current City Councillor Adriane Carr, retired lawyer and social justice advocate Cleta Brown, Chair of the Strathcona Residents Association Pete Fry. You can learn more about each of these nominees on our website, here: www.vangreens.ca/nominees.
We hope you’ll join us to meet the nominees and find out why they want to run for Council as Greens. We plan for the business part of the meeting to be brief, so that we can then move on to a celebration of the launch of our campaign after we have nominated our candidates.
Vancouver – In a press conference held on the steps of City Hall at 10am this morning, the Green Party of Vancouver announced the four nominees that have been endorsed by the party’s Candidate Screening Committee to run for City Council under the Green Party banner in the November 15th, 2014 civic elections.
Seeking to serve Vancouverites for a second term on Council is Adriane Carr, the first elected Green Party of Vancouver City Councilor and one of the civic party’s original founders 30 years ago. But this year, buoyed by strong public support and positive poll results, Carr will not be running solo. This morning Carr and the Green Party of Vancouver introduced a team of three community leaders who, along with Carr, have sought the party’s endorsement for City Council this year.
They are: Cleta Brown, a retired lawyer and tireless social justice advocate; Pete Fry, Chair of the Strathcona Residents Association, and Tracey Moir, Founder & Chair of Oakridge-Langara Area Residents (OLAR).

The Green Party of Vancouver is on the rise!
The messages from the polls are clear: the Green Party of Vancouver‘s commitments to real democracy, real sustainability and a real citizen-led vision for the future of Vancouver have found resonance with the people of Vancouver. As with the Green Party of Canada’s Elizabeth May in Ottawa, Vancouverites have seen how sole Green Councilor Adriane Carr has championed the issues that matter most to them, and now they want more Greens on Council to have an even greater impact.

We are coming up on a very exciting year for the Green Party of Vancouver – a municipal election year! We are looking forward to campaigning to re-elect Adriane and elect more Green City Councillors and Park and School Board representatives!
