White Rock activists plan separate runs at federal and civic office

Two White Rock women have thrown their hats into upcoming elections.

Joy Davies and Pat Petrala made the separate announcements last week. Davies said she will be seeking the federal Liberal nomination for the South Surrey-White Rock riding; Petrala plans to run for a seat on White Rock council.

Davies has represented the interests of local residents at the municipal, provincial and federal levels of government. She has also been a director of B.C. Medical Cannabis Partners supporting the establishment of a provincial medical cannabis program.

Davies said affordable health care, intelligent approaches to tackling crime, more support for seniors’ issues and increased access to post-secondary education are crucial issues for the riding.

For Petrala, November’s municipal election will mark her third time entering the running.

Recipient of the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee Medal and the City of White Rock Legacy Award for her continued community involvement, she named erosion of the community “through spot zoning density” and compromises resulting in the development of “clones of other sterile urban centres,” as among top issues for citizens.
