Wayne Dryer, strong voice for fair taxation elected by party members in Saint John Harbour 

Saint John– Wayne Dryer will be the Green candidate for the riding of Saint John Harbour in next year’s election.  He won last night’s nomination meeting at the Social Enterprise Hub.

'' Wayne Dryer has devoted his life to serving others.  All people of St. John Harbour will have a real voice in the Legislative Assembly should the choose Wayne as their representative, and in doing so they will have elected a true parliamentarian, " said David Coon, leader of the Green party and MLA for Fredericton South. 

Wayne Dryer had this to say about his nomination: '' The Green Party is a principled, revolutionary movement that has its roots in its concern with the environment. It has evolved into a party that recognizes that you cannot take care of the environment without making fundamental changes to the very democratic process through which these decisions about the environment are being made. The Green Party is about doing politics differently.'' 

Ryan Lanigan our second nominee congratulated Dryer. "Thank you to everyone who attended this evening and showed their support; it was greatly appreciated. Congratulations to Wayne and I look forward to working with you and David in preparation for 2018." 

Dryer is the fourth Green party candidate to be nominated. The next nomination meeting will occur on October 3th at the St. Croix Vineyard Church in St. Stephen. Media Advisory to follow.
