Well-known Red Deer resident and the city’s curator of history Michael Dawe will carry the Liberal banner into the next provincial election in the Red Deer North riding.

Dawe, 55, was acclaimed as candidate for the Alberta Liberal Party at a nomination meeting on Thursday night.

A former trustee with David Thompson Health Region and former chair of the Red Deer Regional Hospital Board, Dawe will contest the seat held by Progressive Conservative MLA Mary Anne Jablonski, who has already announced her intention to run again.

The next provincial election is expected to take place this spring.

Also running in the riding are Randy Weins for the Wildrose Party and Derrek Seelinger for the NDP.

In Red Deer South, incumbent MLA and minister of Intergovernmental, International and Aboriginal Relations Cal Dallas will run again.

He will be opposed by the Alberta Party’s Serge Gingras, NDP candidate Lorna Watkinson-Zimmer, and Wildrose Party’s Nathan Stephan.

Red Deer businessman Jason Chilibeck has announced his intention to seek the Liberal nomination for the riding.
