Green Party leader to run in Fredericton riding

Green Party Leader David Coon says he plans to run in the Fredericton-Silverwood riding in the next provincial election.

"Our family has decided to move back to Fredericton after living for a number of years in rural New Brunswick. We will be returning to the city's west side where we had previously lived, which puts us squarely in the riding of Fredericton-Silverwood,” wrote Coon in a release on Tuesday.

Coon had lived in Waweig in Charlotte County.

Now the Green Party’s Fredericton-Silverwood Riding District Association will have to determine when to have a nomination meeting.

In 2010 the Green Party candidate finished fourth in Fredericton-Silverwood with 11.9 per cent of the vote.
