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.

“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.
