March 3, 2017

For Immediate Release

DARTMOUTH – Last night, Claudia Chender was nominated as the NDP candidate in Dartmouth South.  Chender won the nomination on the first ballot in a three-way nomination race.  Chender is a lawyer by training, small-business owner, and publisher.  Chender lives in the district with her husband and three young children.

“This is an important moment. The values and social structures that progressive people in Nova Scotia have long taken for granted are being challenged. This is the time to come together to find solutions to the problems that challenge our communities, and to envision and invest in our future,” said Chender.

“Dartmouth South is an amazing community. We have a hospital, a community college, schools, parks, lakes, and a thriving and growing jewel of a downtown. It’s my home and I couldn’t be more proud of it,” said Chender. “I look forward to earning the support of our community and continuing the tradition set by Marilyn More and Marian Mancini of strong NDP representation.”

“Claudia is part of a new generation of New Democrats,” said NDP Leader Gary Burrill. “She is a person of compelling character and ability, and will be a strong voice for the people and communities of Dartmouth South.”
