February 28 (Nackawic) – Liberals gathered in the riding of Carleton-York this evening to nominate Chris Duffie as their candidate for the next provincial election.

As the event began, Leader of the Liberal Party of New Brunswick Susan Holt said “Chris brings exceptional energy and love for his community to the table. We need to get out there and show people that they have a reason to hope again, and it’s with people on the team like Chris Duffie that we will convey that message.”

Carleton-York is the ninth riding where the Liberal Party is holding a nominating convention leading up to the next election. Over the past 30 years, Chris Duffie has built his company, Terra Consultants, into a thriving information technology business. He owned and operated the Halifax Mac Store, becoming one of the largest Apple dealers in Atlantic Canada. Chris and his wife Amanda have been married for 30 years and have two adult children. He is an avid snowmobiler, a dedicated community volunteer and enjoys attending and supporting organizations all across the riding.

Following the win, Duffie said “I am passionate about ensuring that rural New Brunswick is not forgotten as it has been over the last several years. We need to ensure that rural schools have funded breakfast programs, that business owners have reliable internet access, and we need to work with our rural communities to support and grow economic opportunities.” He added “I am beyond thrilled to be joining this strong team, and look forward to doing my part to ensure a Liberal victory in Carleton York, and electing Susan Holt as Premier.”

In closing the event, surrounded by local supporters and accompanied by Liberal candidates for Fredericton North and Fredericton York, Luke Randall and Tanya Whitney, Holt said, “We continue to add to our dynamic team. We have the momentum, and now with Chris Duffie on the team, we will earn the trust and support of voters in Carleton York.”
