Marilyn Merritt-Gray: A Strong Voice for Gagetown-Petitcodiac

Gagetown – Kars resident, Marilyn Merritt-Gray, will be the Green candidate for the riding of Gagetown-Petitcodiac in next year’s election.  She received the unanimous support of local Green party members at last night’s nomination meeting at the Gagetown Legion.

“Marilyn has dedicated her career to working with, and for, the people of this province particularly in promoting  mental health, women’s health, rural health service delivery and community development,” said David Coon, leader of the Green Party of New Brunswick. “Marilyn is a staunch advocate for rural communities and has the courage and convictions needed to make her an excellent representative for the people of Gagetown-Petitcodiac.”

Merritt-Gray had this to say about her nomination: “I am grateful to those who lent me their support at last night’s meeting and I am eager to continue travelling my home riding, meeting with my neighbours and hearing their concerns and ideas for New Brunswick. I’m glad to hold the nomination for a party that has a real plan to support and empower rural communities, like mine.”

Merritt-Gray is the second Green party candidate to be nominated. The next nomination meeting will occur on September 7th at the Hampton Curling Club. 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.
