Port William resident Mary Lou Harley is on the ballot in Kings North for the Nova Scotia Green Party.
Harley, who is co-president of the party, has held various executive positions since joining the Greens in 2007. A resident of Port Williams since 1995, she has a history of volunteerism in her community.
“I guess you could call me a chronic volunteer,” she said.
Harley, who has a PhD in chemistry, is focused on environmental and development issues. Involved in the 2009 provincial election as a “real back room girl,” she recognized a need for candidates to run during this election cycle.

“People were encouraging me, so I decided to go for it.”
Harley’s goal as a Green candidate is to get the message out about what the party, which has grown since the past election, has to offer. She also plans to focus on educating voters about the Green Party’s policies for creating a sustainable economy for the people of Kings North and Nova Scotia.
