A Roaring Start to the Campaign!
Posted on April 12, 2015 by Robert Walker
Yesterday, Alberta Party Leader Greg Clark launched the Alberta Party’s 2015 campaign to a large crowd of supporters at his Calgary-Elbow campaign headquarters. The speech was broadcast live on the Internet to Alberta Party candidates and supporters spread out across the province.
Greg reminded the crowd that the PCs have increased our government’s dependence on oil and gas and now they want to cut your kids education and your family’s healthcare. Greg outlined how the Alberta Party has a better way through the Alberta Party’s Economic Recovery Plan, including:
- moving to a true progressive taxation system where those who make less pay less, and those who make more pay a little more;
- conducting zero-based audits of every government department, starting with Health, to find efficiencies and ensure your tax dollars are well spent; and
- reducing small business taxes over a period of time to help entrepreneurs to create jobs and diversify our economy.
As Greg’s campaign manager, I can tell you that we are off to a great start. Greg and our doorknocking teams have had a great reception on the doors and we’re getting more and more sign requests each day. Earlier this week, the first poll of the riding confirmed that we are in a neck and neck race.
We can win, but we can’t do it without you!
Last election, Greg lost by only 795 votes. With your support we can win Calgary Elbow. We need as a many volunteers as possible to make sure that everyone in Calgary Elbow learns more about Greg. We have made volunteering easy and fun, so don’t worry if you have never volunteered before. We will find the right job for you! To join our amazing team of volunteers, click here.
Elections also cost money. Whether you can donate $5 or $500, every dollar helps! To donate, click here.
Thank you so much for your support. I look forward to meeting you soon, I hope you’ll join us at our next volunteer welcome night, this Tuesday April 14, 2015 from 7-9pm at the campaign headquarters (2101 34th Ave SW).
