Why I'm running
Being the MLA for Calgary-Glenmore has been a humbling experience and I have worked hard every day to best serve the constituents of this community.
Calgary-Glenmore truly is a snap-shot of everything that has made Alberta great – families, seniors, small businesses, schools, health centres, and greenspace, just to name a few. Our communities are caring, diverse and proud. With this in mind, I want to make sure that your views continue to be heard and your concerns are acted upon.
I have learned much during my three years as your voice in the Legislature. My recent role as Calgary Caucus Chair has enabled me to further ensure that the needs of our communities are well addressed. At a time with this much uncertainty, my experience counts.
With your support, I would be honoured and privileged to once again represent the people of Calgary-Glenmore.
