A rural Alberta farmer wants this province to be a leading example for the rest of the country.

Darcy Davis, 51, is the Progressive Conservative candidate for the Olds-Didsbury-Three Hills riding.

“For me, I don’t like to see things being taken for granted here in Alberta,” said Davis. “I want us to be able to be the best province in Canada and to compete worldwide.”

He wants to ensure rural children have every education opportunity possible and provide relief for all the stress the health care system is under especially when it comes to seniors and homecare.

Why should people in the riding vote for him?

“Because I’m one of you,” said Davis. “I’ve lived in rural Alberta all my life and I have not only local but provincial, national and international experience when it comes to working with people and working for Alberta.”

Davis was born and raised west of Acme. He has been farming all his life, starting right after high school.

Davis and his wife Nora live in Acme on their farm, Lost Creek Cattle Enterprises, a commercial cow herd and grain operation. The couple have two daughters, Skyler and Crystal.

Both Davis and Nora are actively involved in their community, serving as 4-H club leaders and participating in the Acme United Church and the Acme Agricultural Society.

Davis was elected Chair of Alberta Beef Producers in 2004. He was a member of the board for the Canadian Cattlemen’s Association and later became president of the Canadian Agri-food Trade Alliance.

He is presently serving on the board of the Agriculture Financial Services Corporation, helping to provide insurance and lending programs to rural Alberta.

“From my experiences, I feel I have something more to offer,” he said. “And I’ve got the energy and time to give this my all.”
