Red Deer County Coun. Christine Moore officially announced on Monday that she will be seeking the Progressive Conservative nomination for the Red Deer North constituency.
At a press conference attended by about 35 people, Moore, 53, said she has a passion for public service and sees this as an opportunity to serve at the provincial level.
Moore has served also on the Red Deer Catholic school board as a trustee and board chair.
She said she will continue to serve her constituents at the county level and will only leave those duties if she is elected MLA.
The only other candidate to declare is Matt Chapin, 28, who in the past has also run unsuccessfully for Red Deer city council.
