Why I'm running
It has been my honour to serve as your MLA for Calgary - Mackay - Nose Hill. I am proud to have assisted hundreds of constituents with their issues and concerns and have done my very best to represent their views in the Legislature.
If re-elected I will advocate for my constituents on issues including decreased wait times for health care services; better access for Calgary students to post-secondary education and training; and for building schools and roads for our growing communities, including Evanston. I will also continue working for fiscal responsibility, safer communities, preserving public lands, and maintaining seniors’ care and benefits.
I would be proud to represent the people of Beddington Heights, Huntington Hills, MacEwan, Sandstone, Evanston, and Sage Meadows in the next legislature and look forward to continuing to be their voice in government. Together we can build a strong and positive future for Alberta families.
