Mungall opens campaign headquarters in Nelson

A little over a week before the writ drops, MLA Michelle Mungall eagerly opened her campaign office in Nelson on Wednesday.

A little over a week before the writ drops, MLA Michelle Mungall eagerly opened her campaign office in Nelson on Wednesday.

Doors on the 191 Baker Street headquarters opened at 2 p.m. to a steady stream of supporters stopping by to touch base with the MLA and NDP candidate for Nelson-Creston. Mungall said she feels good at the onset of her campaign due to the many supporters on board.

“I have a wonderful group of volunteers, people are calling in and breaking down the doors to volunteer so I feel grateful,” she said.

They believe in her and the NDP platform, said Mungall. She would like to see her party form the next government for the chance to see through ideas coming forward like tax credits for the film industry and a local purchasing program that could see hospitals offering a 100-mile diet along with mainstays like ‘keeping Jumbo wild.’

“People want to see a change and a change in government,” she said.

Mungall intends to run a clean campaign leaving mud slinging for the other guy — the constructive attitude emerging from the crew on hand to kick-off the 2013 election campaign.

“I anticipate a lot of fun in the next five weeks,” she said.

The writ drops April 16 with the election being held May 14.
