Why I’m running
I am running for the Progressive Conservatives because I am passionate about the future of Calgary-Varsity and of our province under the leadership of Jim Prentice. His has the vision, experience and commitment to guide Alberta through low energy prices, to build our quality of life and to have Alberta play a leadership role in Canada. I share Jim Prentice’s vision to broaden Alberta’s access to global energy markets.
Above all, I believe in clear, responsible fiscal management, combined with a compassionate and inclusive social framework. Over the past 35 years I have studied, worked, lived, coached and volunteered in Calgary-Varsity. I am dedicated to providing strong representation and will enthusiastically advocate for the residents of Calgary-Varsity, our city and our province.
