Andrew Clark is the Green Party candidate for Carleton

11 JUNE 2015

(Fredericton) – The Green Party of New Brunswick welcomes Andrew Clark today as its candidate for the upcoming by-election in the Carleton riding.

“We are very excited to have Andrew on board,” said David Coon, MLA Fredericton South and Leader of the Green Party of New-Brunswick. “Andrew values hard work and honesty and will be a great representative for the people of Carleton.”

Clark has spent his career farming and working in the woods. He was President of the N.B. Federation of Woodlot Owners for a total of 11 years as well as a member of the Carleton Victoria Forest Products Marketing Board. He served on that board until 2012 including a three-year period as chairman. Andrew also served on the District Education Council from 2001 to 2004.

“I am passionate about agriculture, foresty, and education, three of the most important issues to the people of my riding,” said Clark. “I am running as a Green candidate because I support values of local sustainability and I know that my vote will always represent this riding, not a party line.”

The government must announce a by-election in the Carleton riding before the end of November.

Our Principles

>Living within Our Ecological Means

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.

> Local Self-Reliance

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.

> Real Democracy

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

> Social Justice and Equality

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.

> Active Citizenship

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.

> A Culture of Peace and Respect

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.
