Green Party Leader David Coon was officially affirmed as the Green candidate for Fredericton South at a nomination meeting held Tuesday night at the Roxstone Café in Fredericton. Coon was elected Leader of the Green Party in September 2012. Prior to that, Coon worked in Fredericton for the Conservation Council for 28 years.
"I will work hard to earn the trust of the people of Fredericton South," said Coon. "We can make history and we can make a difference by electing the first Green MLA to the Legislative Assembly next September. I have devoted my career to championing health communities and a healthy environment. It would truly be a privilege to be the people of Fredericton South's champion in the Legislature," said Coon.
Coon, his wife Janice Harvey, and their two daughters Laura and Caroline live in Skyline Acres.
