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.

I’m glad to hold the nomination for a party that has a real plan to support and empower rural communities, like mine.”
