The White Rock Coalition has named a seventh member to its roster for the upcoming election.
Announced in a news release Tuesday, businesswoman Balbir Thind will run as a council candidate under the Coalition banner.
Thind is described in the release as a founder of a successful business, a volunteer and sits on the board of directors of the YMCA. She is also, the release states, a member of Semiahmoo Rotary where she has contributed locally as well as spear-heading international humanitarian initiatives.
“I love this city, and I believe that the timing is perfect for me to take my experience and my passion for our community and contribute at a greater level as a City Councillor,” she said in the release.
Thind, who is married with three children and two grandchildren, has owned Modern Powder Coatings (12899 76 Ave.) for the past 25 years.
