Congratulations to Roger Reid for a strong, well run campaign here in Livingstone-Macleod. Over the course of six forums, and after freezing with him for hours at polling stations, I can see his passion for this community. I hope that sees him through the difficult travels of helping correct the course of this province with what we hope is a strong, United Conservative Party. To our fellow contestant, Nathan Neudorf, great job on your campaign under what were extenuating circumstances. It was really impressive to see. It was an honor to share this process with both of you.

To my supporters and to the thousands of Albertans I spoke to at the doors and at events over the course of four months, thank you for your hospitality and your well wishes.

I wish to thank the Livingstone-Macleod CA for all of their hard work organizing the forums and polling stations.

Thank you to the many volunteers who helped out during this campaign, and to those who came out and voted in spite of the chilly weather and the inconvenience.

As conservatives, we cannot do the same thing over and over again and expect different results. And I know from reaching out and speaking with so many of you over the summer and fall, you feel that way as well. We have a unique opportunity in Livingstone-Macleod to usher in a new kind of conservatism and to relaunch the Alberta Advantage. We need change in this province - we need to fight back.

Livingstone-Macleod deserves real policy change and the UCP needs a candidate dedicated to the issues and to the people. At this time of dire need for Alberta we need a fighter, a champion for this constituency who works hard to reach out to the people themselves and then translates that outreach into action. There is a great new generation of conservatives flourishing in this province and it would be an honour to be among them, carrying the torch for this constituency.

We need a candidate whose focus is on the grassroots and who has worked hard to reach as many people as possible. I will outwork the other parties and make sure our message of smaller government and lower taxes is brought to as many residents as possible. With me, gone are the days of politicians taking your support for granted. I personally love campaigning and, should I be your MLA, I plan on campaigning and door knocking when back from the Legislature.

We need a conservative of principle, one who doesn't give up those principles for expediency. I have come to those crossroads many times in my life, as I know many of you have as well. I left Canada Post, a position with benefits and pension, to work a purely commission based job for the Canadian Taxpayers Federation. I felt the province was in trouble due to Federal Liberal and Provincial NDP governments. I left the Canadian Taxpayers Federation in order to run for this UCP nomination in a constituency that I have been involved with for years and whose people I hold dear. Principles matter, it is how we received our prosperity and our freedom in the first place.

Over the course of this campaign, the people I have met have left a profound impact on me. Whether it was a sixty-three year old man in High River who didn't know what the future held because he was laid off twice due to minimum wage increases, or the young entrepreneur in Fort Macleod being forced to come up with even more money each month for NDP tax increases, or the fiery mother of six I met in Pincher Creek trying to protect her children from a government bent on undermining her rights as a parent - I remember your concerns, your struggles and your hopes for the future.

We have the potential in this province, particularly in this constituency, to fully embrace this new chance at lower taxes and a smaller, more respectful government. Let's select a candidate for the UCP with the energy, drive and passion it takes to project your voice at caucus table and be heard.

I humbly ask for your vote.

There is one last forum before members head to the polls this Friday, December 7th and Saturday, December 8th. It is tonight in High River at the Heritage Inn Hotel at 7pm, I hope to see you there.
