The federal NDP has chosen a new South Surrey-White Rock-Cloverdale candidate.

Susan Keeping, a long-time White Rock resident and executive director of the Newton Advocacy Group Society, was acclaimed at a nomination convention held Sunday at Ocean Park Hall.

Keeping was the only nominee for the candidacy at the low-profile convention, which was announced to the media Friday afternoon (March 11).

A recipient of the 2008 YWCA Women of Distinction award, Keeping has been noted as a fundraiser and volunteer for such community initiatives as Vibrant Surrey, Surrey Homelessness and Housing Task Force, Save Our Daughters Coalition and the United Way.
