Green Party candidate Laurel Ralston from Kimberley is the fourth entrant into the race for the MLA position in the Columbia River-Revelstoke Riding for the 2013 provincial election.

“We’re taking a long-term view and really looking generations into the future instead of just the next four years,” said Ralston. “And we take that very seriously.”

After growing up in Ottawa, Ralston moved to Kimberley seven years ago. It was here in British Columbia where she became politically charged. She says serving as the president of the Arts Council was her first step into larger-scale leadership, as working with the community organization found her working with the City of Kimberley and other non-profit groups.

Ralston’s application is currently pending. The three confirmed Columbia River-Revelstoke riding candidates for the May 14 election, as of April 24, are Earl Olsen (Conservative), Doug Clovechok (Liberal), and incumbent Norm Macdonald (NDP).
