Former Nelson city councillor Kim Charlesworth will represent the B.C. Green Party in the next provincial election.

Charlesworth defeated Regional District of Central Kootenay director Ramona Faust for the Nelson-Creston nomination, which was held via online vote, according to a statement released by the party Tuesday.

“I’m excited to be the candidate for the Green Party for Nelson-Creston,” Charlesworth said in the statement. “I believe people everywhere want to see a different approach to working on the issues of our times: climate change, food security, building relations with First Nations, the shifting economy and unstable jobs.

“My approach, through the Green Party, is to build partnerships and collaborate. The only way we can change the path we are on is to do it together. We all have a voice. I’d like to hear from the constituents in the Kootenays so I can represent their voices.”

Charlesworth served one term on city council from 2008-11 after moving to Nelson in 2003. She joined the Nelson Food Cupboard in 2013, and is chair of the Kootenay and Boundary Food Producers Co-op, which was formed last year.
