Prince George, B.C. – Natalie Fletcher says she’s rolling up her sleeves in her  effort to win the riding of Prince George-Valemount for the NDP.

At the  official opening of  her campaign  headquarters today,  Fletcher  says  her team will  have to “work harder than we  ever have before”   if  they want to bring about change.

Fletcher, a long time Prince George resident and health care worker, addressed a gathering of about 40 people at her  campaign office at Massey and  Ospika.  She  received  two   hearty  rounds of applause  for two of the planks in the NDP platform, first,   that the NDP will pay for their campaign promises by taxing  the rich,  and secondly that by the end of  the NDP’s first term  “not one person in British Columbia will  work for less than $15 dollars per hour.”

She also spoke of the NDP’s  plan to cut MSP premiums and fund health care and education to the necessary levels.

She says  she decided to make the leap in the political  realm  to bring about change “When I see something that’s wrong,  I want to change it.”   Fletcher says  for too long,  “People are struggling, they are finding it harder and harder to live in B.C. and  it’s really shameful.”

As for what she personally  brings to  the  race?  ” I  care about people and  I work hard,  I am approachable.”

Fletcher is up against incumbent Liberal Shirley Bond  and Green Candidate Nan Kendy.
