Congratulations Alberta and especially to the people of Lacombe-Ponoka. You came out in near record numbers to ensure that democracy works.
The people have spoken. You have taken back the right to set the agenda for our collective society.
Congratulations to Team Notley on their well-run campaign and a decisive overall win. And my respects also to the other Lacombe-Ponoka candidates that worked so hard to represent their views.
Thank you to all those who volunteered, donated and voted for me to represent you in the Legislature for the next four years. I am humbled and honoured by your affirmation.
To all the people in this constituency, I am here to assist and represent you in matters of provincial jurisdiction. The MLA office will be open by the end of the month in the same location as before (101-4892 46 St., Lacombe, phone: 403-782-7725). Please come in and introduce yourself.
As members of the official opposition, Wildrose MLAs will continue to hold the majority government accountable and report to the people. We will provide the proper checks and balances to government. We will continue, as in the past three years, to fight for your rights and protection.
Alberta has turned over a new political page. Well, actually, we have started a new book. This is a new era with new authors. Now all Albertans must work to write the best possible story of our future.
