Wetaskiwin writer says choose the ‘right’ party

UCP nomination race for Maskwacis Wetaskiwin coming up

Dear editor,

With accumulating provincial debt load in the Province of Alberta it is very important that we as citizens stand up to the spending habits of our present government. It is important that we make the proper choices to live within or means and to manage our finances for the future.

We must also choose a political party that ensures that we are globally competitive in our shrinking world. Alberta must make sure that we do not over regulate our primary businesses that provide the employment and the prosperity we have all grown to enjoy.

The next provincial election is coming up and is expected to be called in early to mid 2019.

Each political party is actively preparing for this very important election to have the best candidate in each constituency for their party.

While the past provincial election caught many people not paying attention, I am hoping that people will get involved in the process to choose a person and a party that is right of Alberta.

Polls are showing that Alberta will very likely choose a party that makes a move back to the common sense approach that supports all sizes of businesses of all business sectors.

If you want to be involved in choosing a candidate for this party, that is right for the new constituency of Maskwacis -Wetaskiwin, which serves a large area with about 44,000 residents, you must be a United Conservative Party member on or before August 2, 2018. It is anticipated that the candidate for this riding will be chosen by eligible party members later in August, 2018.

This constituency includes Wetaskiwin, Maskwacis,Millet, Ferintosh, New Serepta Bittern Lake, Miquelon Lake, and large portions of Leduc County, (up to the City of Leduc and Town of Beaumont boundaries), all easterly portions of Wetaskiwin County including Pigeon Lake and portions of Camrose County lying west of Highway 21.

Choosing the right person now will assist in having Alberta well managed into the future. Having a strong politically experienced candidate for our region will have us included in high levels of the next provincial government. We need a strong voice to work within the provincial government to work for the constituents.

To join the “right”party and help choose the candidate that unites us all you must become a party member by August 1st, 2018 at a cost of $10.
