Marco Morency new executive director of the Green Party of NB
(Fredericton, April 2, 2019) - The Green Party of NB has hired an experienced activist, Marco Morency, as executive director. The community organizer wants to be at the heart of the action and make gains in the next election. For him, the time has come to become politically engaged.
Originally from Edmundston and based in Moncton since university, Marco Morency is known for his commitment to social and environmental causes. He first became involved in the Petitcodiac River issue in the late 1990s and then became executive director of the Petitcodiac Riverkeeper in 2010. He has been active locally, provincially and nationally for more than 20 years and has contributed to many organizations, including several environmental and Acadian organizations. Before joining the Green Party of New Brunswick, he was deputy executive director of the Congrès mondial acadien 2019.
According to him, his new functions are the logical next step from his social activism. "I support the ideas and values of the party 100%. Frankly, I didn't think I'd find that in a political party. The Green Party of NB is the best vehicle to meet the challenges of this critical time for our common future".
The results of the last election give him hope. "People want change and I want to help give them a voice. Our three MLAs do politics differently. These are not just words; they take concrete action. It's refreshing and that's what people want to see. Now we need more Green Party MLAs and that's why I'm here," says the new executive director.
"Marco's management skills and organizational leadership experience are exactly what our rapidly growing party needs to succeed in every region of our province", said Green Party leader David Coon. "I look forward to working with him".
People will have the opportunity to engage with Mr. Morency at the Party's annual convention to be held on April 6 and 7 in Beresford.
