John Sabine: Vice-chairman of the SNB Forest Products Marketing Board acclaimed by party members in Hampton

Hampton – John Sabine will be the Green candidate for the riding of Hampton in next year’s election.  He received the unanimous support of local Green party members at last night’s nomination meeting at the Hampton Curling Club.

'' I am pleased that John will be running as a Green for a second time. He is committed to his community and is a tireless advocate for rural New Brunswick in fighting the injustice on behalf of woodlot owners in southern New Brunswick," said David Coon, leader of the Green party and MLA for Fredericton South. "The people of Hampton would be well served by John Sabine as their MLA."

John Sabine had this to say about his nomination: “ New Brunswickers deserve an open, honest and transparent government. Not the self-serving, patronage filled corruption we have been receiving for decades by successive Liberal and Conservative governments.'' 
''I will work hard with you to achieve real and positive change for a better New Brunswick for all,"  said Sabine.

Sabine is the third Green party candidate to be nominated. The next nomination meeting will occur on September 18th at the St. Croix Vineyard Church in St. Stephen. Media Advisory to follow.

Our Principles

> Non-Violence

A culture of cooperation, caring and understanding is essential to ending violence in our society. Rehabilitation rather than vengeance must be the goal of our justice system.

> Self-Determination and Citizenship

We must have the opportunity and the responsibility as citizens to contribute to the common good, which requires that all have the capacity to participate in community life.

> Social Justice and Equality

Everyone must have equal access to the necessities of life and be treated with dignity and respect. Treaties with First Nations must be honoured.

> Participatory Democracy

We must be able to participate in decisions that affect our lives and be guaranteed that our votes are reflected in the make-up of the Legislative Assembly.

> Local Self-Reliance

Our communities should be in control of their own destinies, supported by strong local economies, and sustained by local sources of food and renewable energy.

> Living within Our Ecological Means

We must live within the ecological limits of the Earth, while meeting our needs without threatening our children's future or the survival of other species.
