Reason for running

submitted by the candidate or their team
Over the past 30 years I have witnessed significant evolution in Party Politics in Alberta and the evolution of the major parties themselves. The pandemic has created a breeding ground of divisive hatred between camps such that we no longer vote for our core beliefs.

Politics in Alberta has devolved into a hatred for 'the other'. We no longer look at the candidates in our constituencies and match with the one who nearest represents our beliefs and ideals. Instead we hold our nose and vote against that which we despise. I found a home in the Alberta Party (AP) where issues are addressed with evidence based solutions rather than on ideologic grounds. The AP offers a full spectrum of policies and a platform that lends itself to cooperative rather than divisive politics.

My hope is that I can deliver the AP message to all of my constituents and return to an age when integrity, accountability and the rule of law were the hallmarks of every public official.
