Prior to being elected Red Deer-North MLA in the last election, I worked as a health-care aide and spent much of my career caring for seniors.

I saw the impact the previous Conservative government’s policies had on our seniors and families. There was a clear lack of support for Red Deer, which motivated me to run.

Since then, I have been hard at work making sure Red Deer gets what we need. Faced with a sudden downturn in the price of oil, my New Democratic Party choose to protect the things that matter to Albertans.

We invested in our education system by hiring teachers and building schools, and turning Red Deer College into a university. We invested in the airport expansion, the courthouse and a new homeless shelter.

And, we fought hard for a pipeline while also working to diversify our economy and create jobs.

There’s more that I want to do for Red Deer. We have a plan to expand the Red Deer Hospital, and to make sure that there are enough nurses, doctors and health-care aides to staff it.

We have a plan for our education system, so that when students go back to class this fall, there are enough teachers to meet them.

We have a plan to take care of seniors with more long-term care beds and cutting the costs of prescriptions. And we have a plan to balance the budget without hurting people.

This is a plan that I’m proud of because I know it represents what matters to Red Deerians and I’m proud to be running again to represent Red Deer-North
