A Red Deer city councillor who was considering seeking one of two PC nominations in the city has decided against it.

A Red Deer city councillor who was considering seeking one of two PC nominations in the city has decided against it.

Lawrence Lee said he had many variables to consider and ultimately decided he wanted to continue as a city councillor. “I still have so much to give our city locally.”

Both Red Deer North and Red Deer South MLAs, Mary Anne Jablonski and Cal Dallas respectively, who are Progressive Conservatives, have decided they are not going to run again whenever the next provincial election takes place.

Christine Moore and Matt Chapin are seeking the PC nomination for Red Deer North. Michael Dawe will run in that constituency as a Liberal, independent or under a cross-party endorsement that could involve the Liberal, Alberta and Green Party.

Darcy Mykytyshyn is seeking the PC nomination for Red Deer South.

Meanwhile, over the weekend, the Progressive Conservative Association of Alberta announced more local candidate nominations dates have been set.

The nomination day for Olds-Didsbury-Three Hills is March 14 and Drumheller-Stettler’s will be March 21.

Olds town councillors Wade Bearchell and Debbie Bennett, and former Mountain View County councillor Ron Richardson, are seeking the Olds-Didsbury-Three Hills PC nomination.

Olds-Didsbury-Three Hills MLA Bruce Rowe is not seeking re-election after one-term in office. The MLA was elected as a member of the Wildrose Party. He crossed the floor to the governing PCs in December with eight other Wildrose MLAs, including leader Danielle Smith.

Nathan Cooper will run for the Wildrose in Olds-Didsbury-Three Hills.

In Drumheller-Stettler, Greggory Jackson is seeking the PC nomination and Wildrose MLA Rick Strankman is nominated and will be running again.
