JO PAVLOV TO REPRESENT GREEN PARTY IN HAMILTON EAST: VOWS TO RUN WITHOUT BIRKENSTOCKS

 

HAMILTON — The Green Party of Ontario has nominated Jo Pavlov, an IT professional with the Hamilton Wentworth District School Board, to represent the party in the riding of  Hamilton East.

 

“Forget what you think you know about the Green Party.  This isn’t a party of Birkenstock-wearing tree-huggers — those old stereotypes are a thing of the past,” says Pavlov. “I’m proud to represent a strong, professional party that offers an alternative to a grey skyline and a grey government.  I think we Hamiltonians have seen enough of both.”

 

Pavlov, a longtime resident of Hamilton, has been a passionate supporter of environmental causes and an advocate of A Better Way to Live for many years.  When she was a student at Delta Secondary, she created a school recycling program.  She went on to write a thought-provoking weekly column for the Mohawk College Satellite.   She also designed and maintained an Internet discussion board for a growing childfree movement.  In her free time, she likes to hike on the Hamilton rail trails

 

“So many of today’s issues are green-themed:  pesticide use, genetically modified foods and highway construction,” said Frank de Jong, Leader of the Green Party of Ontario.  “We’re proud to have Jo as our candidate because she isn’t afraid to tackle those tough issues.  She’s also proud to live and work in a culturally diverse and vibrant city.  I know that her energy, professionalism and strong principles will resonate with the people of Hamilton.” 

 

“This election will see a Green breakthrough not only in Hamilton, but across the province,”   says Pavlov.  “There’s a real sense of excitement in the air.  Of something historic about to happen.  It’s a thrill to be part of it.”

 

In the coming election the Green Party will run 103 candidates this — one in each Ontario riding — including the newest candidate.
