We are thankful that we live in a country where we have free and open elections for those who serve in our provincial legislature. We are also grateful that we have people like MLA: Selina Robinson who chose to serve the people of Coquitlam-Millardville and British Columbia as an MLA. We pray that You would give her the ability to quickly understand the facets of a situation or issue and be able to work out solutions effectively and efficiently. May You also continue to help her build those relationships that will help her to accomplish those things that are on heart. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
Selina Robinson was elected as the MLA for Coquitlam-Maillardville in May, 2013.
