On Saturday, April 11th Progressive Conservative candidate George Rogers held an Open House at his new headquarters located at #2 4913 52nd Avenue from 1 to 4pm. Mr. Rogers is seeking his fourth term as MLA for the Leduc-Beaumont District.

Mr. Rogers became Leduc’s assistant treasurer in 1986 before moving to Redcliff, Alberta to become their municipal administrator. When Mr. Rogers returned to his hometown to start a career in real estate he was elected to city council in 1992 and again in 1995. In 1998 he was elected as Leduc’s Mayor and won re-election in 2001.

In 2004 he was successful in his bid to become the MLA for the Leduc-Beaumont- Devon District and again in 2008. In 2012 he successfully stood for re-election in the new Leduc-Beaumont District.

Voters should be aware of the fact that during an election period sitting MLA’s cannot use their MLA Office for election purposes and must maintain an election headquarters separate from their government office. This led to some confusion on Saturday, as several constituents were unaware of the difference and went to the wrong site.

When an election is called, sitting MLA’s running for re-election can still assist constituents with emergent nonpartisan concerns but are limited as they no longer can notarize documents or act as a commissioner of oaths. They are basically suspended from having access to services normally provided to MLA’s through the government.

Mr. Rogers and his staff invited anyone who has a question or a concern to drop into the headquarters and have a chat.
