Coun. Brittny Anderson, a vocal proponent for the climate and the cannabis industry in and outside of Nelson Council Chambers will seek the NDP Nelson-Creston Nomination in October’s snap election. That news came last week after incumbent Michelle Mungall announced she would not seek re election.

Anderson joined Kootenay Morning on Sep 23. to chat about the campaign, her time in council and the issues she thinks matter to local constituents.

She praised local constituents saying the riding has a strong track record of elected dynamic women.

“Nelson has a really strong legacy of electing strong, capable dedicated women and I would be thrilled to be able to be that voice in Victoria,” Anderson told KCR News.

Anderson also touched on her track record in Council Chambers, what folks can expect to see and hear on the campaign trail, and her passion for being a strong voice in Victoria if elected.

Anderson said her primary concerns will be fighting for action on climate change, local business amid the pandemic, and affordable housing across the riding.
