DEBEC – The New Brunswick Liberal Association held a nomination convention Saturday afternoon for the next provincial election on September 24, 2018. Christy Culberson was nominated as the Liberal candidate for Carleton.
Premier Brian Gallant, who is also Leader of the New Brunswick Liberal Party, was present at the nomination and commended Culberson on her community engagement in the riding.
“Christy’s business experience and community involvement will make her a strong voice for Carleton county as we continue to grow New Brunswick’s economy, strengthen our healthcare system, and improve education in our province” said Gallant.
