100 day update

By Greg Clark

I am pleased to issue the third report on our progress against the measures outlined in the business plan for the Alberta Party called 2020 Vision, our two-election strategy to earn the trust of Albertans and form government by the year 2020

The first 100 days since I was elected leader have been a time of significant growth for the party. We hired staff, built Constituency Associations and significantly exceeded our fundraising targets. I am particularly pleased by the number of individual donations we’ve received, many from first-time donors to the Alberta Party.

I am so proud of what our team has accomplished to date, and we’re just getting started. 2014 will be a building year for the Alberta Party as we continue to establish the processes and foundation that will put us in a position to elect MLAs in 2016.

The final third of the first 100 days of my leadership was dominated by our strong opposition to Bills 45 and 46, which stripped public sector unions of the right to arbitration, imposed a wage settlement and added harsh penalties for even threatening a strike, which the Alberta Party believes violates Albertans’ fundamental right to free speech.

Our response was forceful and immediate; we issued a news release, I wrote a blog about Bills 45 and 46 and I spoke to a rally from the steps of the Alberta Legislature.

In addition to our action on these bills I continued to build the party by traveling the province to meet with Albertans, listen to their vision for our province and discuss ideas about how we can get there.

I will continue to keep you and all Albertans informed about our progress throughout the year. The Alberta Party Board of Directors will establish quarterly targets for 2014 to ensure we have clear, ambitious but achievable goals that will guide our activities. We will remain transparent in reporting our progress against our targets so all Albertans can hold us accountable for our performance. 

We will continue to communicate with you but please also stay in touch with us. You can reach me on my personal email, follow me on Twitter or contact me through our Facebook page.

Thank you again for your support.

Greg.
