The past week was all about getting out and sharing the dream with people in the riding. We had a successful pints & politics at O'Sheas in Drumheller where we had good discussions about how we need to focus on people no matter who you are or what interest you represent.
Then I got to celebrate #SocialWorkWeek2019 with my favorite purple Minion Sam!
And last but not least, there was time to take my son to the Leg in Edmonton for his grade 9 field trip where the kids learn a bit more about what MLA's do and what the political system is all about. Of course I just had to take a picture on such a sunny day!
Questions for the Drumheller-Stettler candidates in the Drumheller Mail.
After meeting with the Hanna Learning Centre board this past week, it was time to head east and meet with people at the other end of the riding. Windy and -25 is great door knocking weather, which I found out in Oyen before heading down the road to Acadia Valley.
They were hosting their Messy Maker playgroup fundraiser and Acadia Valley and District rec club ice to dice bonspiel. 28 teams from the area competing in a 5 day curling bonspiel to raise money for the Messy Maker playgroup and have an otherwise great time. Like every small community in rural AB, the people make the difference in fundraising, events and keeping their facilities going. And as usual at these events, the food and hospitality was fantastic!
And just to show how big our riding is - Drumheller all the way to the border...
Join the Alberta Party team for our constituency association AGM, Wednesday March 6th at 7pm at the Ramada Inn in Drumheller.
Following that, come to O'Sheas for a pints & politics and a load of good cheer!
I'll be there, hope you will too!
Got to door knock with the CA president in Drumheller last weekend. Andrew must be committed, it was -20 that day!

This past week was a cold one, especially out knocking on doors! However good times and good food were had at the Canadian Beef Centre of Excellence in Calgary. They were a great host telling us how they work to showcase Canadian Beef and the entire beef industry.
Pictured above are ABP MLA's Rick Fraser, Karen McPherson, Candidates Chase Brown, Mark Nikota, Kevin Smook and Chef Cameron Pappel; below that is the fun shot - good times had by all!
This week was more door knocking around the constituency and meeting with people.
After meeting with the Castor Town Council I got to spend more time at the doors in that community and then headed over to the Village of Munson to talk Alberta Party with the residents. People are concerned about the future, whether its the economy, services, or leaving a massive fiscal mess for our kids and grand-kids to clean up.
We can balance the books, support people that need help and have a thriving economy, it doesn't have to be one or the other and the Alberta Party can find the balance while moving the province forward.
If you want to see a balanced, practical approach to solving our problems check us out and if you want to support the campaign, click above to send us a message! Thanks for taking the time to see what we're all about.
Got to spend a great day door knocking in Stettler meeting people and discussing how an Alberta Party Government would work hard to balance the many issues in the province such as a thriving economy, balancing the books while providing services for people.
After the door knocking came time to watch the AB Scotties and cheer on team Marthaller; they won the game but lost the next day in the Semi-finals. A great showing though and very proud of how far they've come.
