Can I count on you?

    If you want to choose Alberta’s next leader, you need to have a current membership in the Progressive Conservative party. If you support what I stand for, join the party and vote for me. Membership deadline is September 3.

    I have made campaign commitments … 42 so far, with more to come. I am keeping track because I will keep my word.

    Improving education

    - I will change diploma exams, implement a tax credit for classroom supplies, and reduce education red tape. Read more…

    Calling for open debate

    - I have called for an open candidates’ debate. Another candidate and I sent an open letter to the party. Read more…

    Taking a stand

    - The federal government’s changes to the Temporary Foreign Worker program will harm Alberta’s communities and economy (Facebook post) .
    - We need to reconsider whether closing the Michener Centre in Red Deer is the best approach for families (Calgary Herald story)

    Formulating policy

    Quality of life is determined at the breakfast table, not the boardroom table.
    Under my leadership, government will:

    - bring in new ideas
    - be more open and accountable
    - improve social programs
    - build infrastructure we can afford
    - diversify our economy

    How to vote

    PC members will vote online, by telephone and (in a few locations) in person on Sept. 5 and 6. More information is here.
