PENTICTON - The B.C. Green party has found a candidate for the Boundary-Similkameen riding.

Vonnie Lavers will be the party’s candidate in Boundary-Similkameen in the upcoming provincial election.

“It’s time for new thinking, where families flourish, communities flourish and our province flourishes using common sense principles that nurture people’s livelihoods and enjoyment of nature,” Lavers says in a media release.

The party says she has a wealth of experience in business, public relations, marketing and communications, non-profit leadership, community organization development and government relations.

Lavers is the former executive director of the Kelowna Food Bank.

She has a public relations education degree and received a Governor General’s Award in 2012 for her work in providing healthy food to families in need. 

Lavers will be running against incumbent Liberal MLA Linda Larson and B.C. NDP candidate Colleen Ross.

The provincial election will be held on May 9.
