Why I'm running
It has been a great privilege for me to serve as your MLA for the past 3 terms and I look forward to continue building on the progress we’ve made.
Together, we have completed many important projects in Woodcreek, Evergreen and Bridlewood. We brought 3 new schools to our community (with another on the way), the South Calgary Health Campus and we reached the historic SW Calgary Ringroad Agreement.
We have launched positive, proactive policies and programs that increase quality of life for all Albertans. We now have the power to make pivotal choices to steer us towards a more predictable and sustainable method of managing our incredible province. I truly appreciate the opportunity to help build an even better province for tomorrow under the leadership of Jim Prentice.
