The current government is failing over landowner rights and utility issues, says former fibre optics engineer and Wildrose candidate for Rimbey-Rocky Mountain House-Sundre.

Joe Anglin says that he chose to run for the Wildrose party because they are “instituting common sense.” He says the current government has “horrified” him when it comes utility issues and landowner rights.

“The Wildrose is going back to the basics of Conservative values and it was amazingly appealing to me,” Anglin said. “Knowing electricity the way I know electricity, people are getting gouged. They don’t understand the system, they just know that it is not working.”

Particular to his riding, Anglin mentions the issues surrounding health care, seniors care, education and the environment.

“I like to say that they all have the same importance,” he said. “The environment is huge. I have been going around listening to people and they are quite concerned about water.”

To help some of these issues, Anglin believes in changing the culture of politics.

“I do not believe in the politics that we have where your local elected official represents the party and tows the party line. The party in power has lost its way and it’s going to require new blood, fresh thought and better qualifications to manage this complex world.”

Anglin, 56, has been married for 18 years to Deborah, who is a minister. They have a 16-year-old son and 13-year-old daughter.

Anglin has lived in Rimbey since 2004 and has severed on the Town of Rimbey council close to two years. He moved to Rimbey from Gibsons, British Columbia, where he was a Canadian Coast Guard. Anglin has also worked as a United States marine, a police officer and as a fibre optics engineer for Bell Laboratories. He further operated his own brokerage business which traded commodities and currencies out Vancouver and Bellingham, Washington. Anglin has duel citizenship.
