MLA pulls the pin
Sep 7, 2012 / 12:01 pm
North Coast New Democrat MLA Gary Coons has announced he won't be running again in the next B.C. election.
Coons joins more than a dozen other members of the legislature, both Liberal and NDP, who have also announced they're giving up politics before voters head to the polls next May.
The two-term MLA says he's honoured to have served his constituents and thanked them for putting their trust in him.
Coons says he's proud to be part of such a dedicated team of New Democrats and is looking forward to seeing the party bring positive change in 2013.
New Democrats Dawn Black of New Westminster and Maple Ridge-Pitt Meadows MLA Michael Sather have also announced they won't be running.
