The Green Party of Vancouver announced on Monday a four-person list of candidates for the city's next round of elections on Nov. 14, 2014.

Winning the party's endorsement for this year's City Council elections will be current councillor Adriane Carr, as well as Cleta Brown, Pete Fry, and Tracey Moir. The four nominees were endorsed by the Green Party's Candidate Screening Committee.

In November, 2011, Carr became the first-ever Green Party member elected to Vancouver's city council, in her eighth attempt. She also helped found the Green Party of B.C. and became its first spokesperson in 1983, then founding the Green Party of Vancouver in 1984.

"I love my work representing the citizens of Vancouver on Council, and I'm excited to run for re-election, but I would accomplish much more if Vancouverites elect these fantastic individuals to join me there," Carr said, with a plug for her three other Green nominees in 2014.

"They are all smart, compassionate and fair-minded: already working to represent communities and advocate for people in need. They know how to listen, and they are intimately familiar with the complex issues facing Vancouver today."

The Green Party of Vancouver's members will meet and confirm the four nominees for city council on May 4.

Vancouver's city council is made up of the Mayor (Gregor Robertson) and 10 councillors who are elected at large for a three-year term.
