Former islander to run for New Democrats

  • Dec. 13, 2004 4:00 p.m.

Former islander Gloria Rendell has joined the race to be the North Coast NDP candidate in next year’s provincial election.
Ms Rendell, who works for Northern Savings Credit Union and now lives in Prince Rupert, is one of three candidates who have been approved by NDP headquarters, North Coast constituency president Rod Kingsfield said. The other two are Russell Wiens and teacher Gary Coons.
“I think we’ve got ourselves a pretty excellent race starting up here,” Mr. Kingsfield said. “I’m very excited.”
The nomination race is still open, and Mr. Kingfield said he has been talking to one person on the Charlottes who is very interested in putting their name forward. People who want to run for the nomination have until mid-January to get their paperwork into NDP headquarters, he said.
NDP members will choose their candidate on Feb. 19. An all-candidates meeting will be held in Prince Rupert on Jan. 25, Mr. Kingfield said. The NDP isn’t planning to hold any all-candidates meetings on the Charlottes because it would be too expensive, he said.
Any NDP members who are interested in running for the nomination should contact Mr. Kingfield at 622-2007 or northcoastndppres@canada.com
