UCP nomination open for Red Deer South

The Red Deer South United Conservative Party nomination is open after earlier being delayed.

Nomination applications are due Feb. 21 at 5 p.m.

Norman Wiebe, Bruce Buruma, Adele Poratto and Jason Stephan have announced they’ll seek the party’s nomination in the riding.

“I know that we all share concerns about our hospital lacking essential services, a shortage of seniors care facilities, a justice system that is failing us daily, and an education system that has gone awry,” Wiebe said in a statement.

“UCP members have the power to influence the path forward through this vote. Our candidate must understand the challenges our economy faces, and know how to tackle this problem.

“Red Deer is an oil and gas town, and we need the jobs that go with a strong energy sector,” he added.

The party said in December that the nomination was being delayed to accommodate a high-profile candidate.
