A third candidate is in place for the Carbonear-Harbour Grace district byelection, as the NDP confirmed Sunday that Charlene Sudbrink will have her name on ballots to represent the party.

Charlene Sudbrink, the NDP candidate for the Carbonear-Harbour Grace district byelection, is seen here in a TC Media file photo taken in 2011.

A trained potter who lives in Freshwater, Sudbrink has served as chair of the Freshwater Heritage Society and has past involvement with the community’s local service district committee.

A party spokeswoman said Sudbrink was campaigning in the district Sunday with NDP leader Lorraine Michael.

Carbonear mayor Sam Slade is the Liberal candidate, while Jack Harrington is running for the Progressive Conservative party. Harrington was the executive assistant to former Carbonear-Harbour Grace MHA Jerome Kennedy, who announced last month his decision to leave politics. Kennedy has since returned to practising law in St. John’s.

The byelection is set to take place Nov. 26.

Organizations: Freshwater Heritage Society

Geographic location: Carbonear, Freshwater

    Charlene will get many more votes than suggested below. Well-known and well-liked throughout the riding.

    Could the NDP be any more disorganized? Good work Lorraine. You might get 150 votes
