FREDERICTON - A member of the Progressive Conservative caucus in New Brunswick is going to seek an NDP nomination in September's provincial election.

The 72-year-old politician was first elected as a Progressive Conservative member of the legislature in 1978 and re-elected in 1982.

He was defeated in 1987 when the Liberals won every seat in the house under then premier Frank McKenna, but was re-elected in 1999 and in every election since.

The former teacher and high school principal also served two terms as speaker of the legislature.
