The Green Party has nominated Chris George to run in the Shuswap constituency in the May 14 provincial election.

“As clichéd as it may sound, I am running to make the world a better place for my children,” said George, who lives in Notch Hill, near Salmon Arm.

“My kids are my world. I want to leave them a community that is full of possibility, with clean air, water and food at hand and a vibrant and diverse economy for them to find their place in.”

He is currently enrolled in the bachelor of general studies program at Thompson Rivers University.

He has managed restaurants and retail outlets and was a financial planner and a technology consultant.

“It is time for new ideas, to harness the innovation and hard work of all British Columbians in building a resilient economy, to break us out of the boom and bust pattern that has been our hallmark. And it can all start right here, in this community,” sad George.

The Green Party is preparing for the election campaign.

“Chris joins a team of passionate people who want to represent the citizens of their constituency in the legislative assembly,” said leader Jane Sterk.
