Congratulations to Miller, and thanks for the support

To the constituents of Red Deer South: What an election campaign!

To the constituents of Red Deer South:

What an election campaign!

I would first like to start by congratulating Barb Miller (NDP) on her victory in Red Deer South. I had the opportunity of dropping in on their celebration on the night of May 5 to congratulate her personally and it is easy to see that her heart is in the right place and her passion for representation will serve her well.

In addition, I would like to congratulate the other candidates in our constituency for strong and well-run campaigns.

To the countless people who supported our campaign, from donors to volunteers and our campaign team, we could not have engaged the constituency in the way we did without your support and dedication. One of the most overwhelming aspects about politics is the willingness of people to stand up and help you move a vision forward, and in my case, I had the best team I could have hoped for.

Finally to you, the constituents of Red Deer South, thank for you the opportunity of having a conversation. The 28-day campaign was the most rewarding of my career because it gave me a chance to engage with you on a one-to-one basis and talk about what is important to the future of the province.

Our team calculated that I walked more than 200 km and collectively we knocked on more than 10,000 doors during this campaign, and I have to tell you, I loved every minute of it. While we didn’t always share the same perspectives, we were united in wanting a bright future for our city and province.

Thank you for making the time to engage with us when we met you at the door.

We are in a new era in Alberta, sit back and enjoy the ride!

PS. The silver lining in this for me is I am down 10 pounds, in the best shape I have been in years, and get to spend some much needed time with my family!
