AFTER weeks of rumours, Dr Patricia Petersen has been endorsed as the Greens candidate for Blair.
Dr Petersen was initially running as an independent, before sounding out the LNP party and finally the Greens party.
"It has not been a decision I have taken lightly," Dr Petersen said.
"I considered this move to the Greens extremely carefully.
"Taking my time to reflect on what is right for the electorate will pay off for everyone.
"The Greens have reassured me they are attracted to me as a candidate because I am honest and have demonstrated integrity in relation to my views."
Dr Petersen will run against sitting Labor MP Shayne Neumann and an LNP candidate from a regional council.
