Former New Westminster-Coquitlam MP Paul Forseth is amongst a quartet of notables who will be seeking TEAM Burnaby council nominations at the civic party's July 31 nomination meeting.
Forseth is a former four-term MP who lost as a Conservative in the May federal election in Burnaby-New Westminster to the NDP's Peter Julian.
Previously, Forseth had represented the ridings of New Westminster-Burnaby from 1993 to 1997, New Westminster-Coquitlam-Burnaby from 1997 to 2004, and New Westminster-Coquitlam from 2004 to 2006. The ridings changed names and boundaries because of redistribution.
Also seeking Burnaby council nominations are former Burnaby councillors Garth Evans and Lee Rankin, along with former mayoralty candidate Ray Power.
Currently, all Burnaby council spots are held by members of the Burnaby Citizens Association party.
"TEAM Burnaby plans to run a full slate for mayor, council and school board," said party president Graham Murchie in a press release.
Murchie said the TEAM board was impressed by the strong credentials and backgrounds of the candidates to date.
"The candidates bring both private and public life experience to the table," he said.
Evans, representing the federal Liberals, also lost to Julian in this May's election, coming in third.
