It is time for change. We need an MLA that is willing to work with the other levels of government. It shouldn't be a my way or the highway type situation, and that's what we have right now. The Alberta Liberal Party will be a driving force on my issues here in Fort McMurray. The candidate Ross Jacobs visited my house this past Thursday, he has energy backed up with policy and systems in place. He has my whole family's vote.

I pride myself in voting Liberal or NDP. I think that the Liberal party is exactly the change that Alberta needs, a move from business-centered conservatism to Albertan-centered liberalism.

However, it's hard to vote for another party when I've seen what Guy Boutilier (Conservative) has done for this city and the region in his years as our MLA, and before that, our mayor.
Still, I think it's not enough, and we need a new face in the region.

Wood Buffalo is at the heart of Alberta's economy, and we desperately need help to stabilize our growth.
