Wildrose Party candidate takes aim at the Provincial Conservatives

Trevor Miller, Wildrose Candidate Wetaskiwin/Camrose constituency, Camrose County Councilor,  Agronomy Manager, Cargill and husband and father of three takes on Verlyn Olson, Minister of Justice and Attorney General and MLA for the Wetaskiwin- Camrose constituency.
 During a difficult battle you use all the tools and strategies available which is exactly what Trevor did when he recently joined Danielle Smith and crew in Camrose and Wetaskiwin. Danielle is also in the midst of a difficult battle and is diligently touring Alberta to increase the awareness and popularity of the Wildrose Party, sell memberships and to counteract the recent increase in popularity of the Conservatives fuelled by the race for the Premier’s position. The group participated in the BVJ parade in Camrose and then travelled on to Wetaskiwin to meet with party supporters.
 Freshly elected a few weeks ago Trevor comes to this new challenge with the political background and experience as a County Councilor. Although he is finding a lot of positiveness, he admits he has a lot to do with learning more about public views
 Trevor has a strategy. Right now, “My main focus is relationship building and understanding what people need and want. I want to be in line with those wants and needs. This (winning the election) is not only for me. This is to do with the whole area. My philosophy as County Councillor is to serve the people.” But, he stresses he needs some feed back from people to move forward. “What I am going to do first-off is build a stronger team base, bring them in and discuss how we are going to present to the community and the public.”
 Trevor faces a tough challenge.  As recently reported by the Calgary Herald, an Environics poll suggests the bloom is off the Wildrose, the fledgling party that appeared to be running neck and neck with the Conservatives just eight months ago.
 The poll, commissioned by the Calgary Herald and Edmonton Journal, suggests the governing Tories have rocketed back to 54 per cent in popular opinion from 34 per cent in November while the Wildrose plummeted from 32 per cent to 16 per cent.
 Mensah (political Chair, Grant MacEwan) said it shows the ongoing Tory leadership race is giving the Progressive Conservative Party a new lease on life. But he adds, if the new leader fails to breathe new life into the 40year dynasty, the support may be short-lived.
 "The outcome of the vote will determine whether this big bounce can be sustained or simply disappear as we head into the next election," he said.
