Alberta Advantage Party announces candidate for Rocky Mountain House – Sundre

Paula Lamoureux was one of three candidates announced by the Alberta Advantage Party

The Alberta Advantage Party has announced its first three candidates for the spring 2019 Alberta election.

Former Wolf Willow Public School Trustee Paula Lamoureux will be running in the Rocky Mountain House – Sundre constituency.

“I have such a connection to that area, that is where I spend 90 per cent of my free time,” said Lamoureux in a phone interview. “I love small communities. I love walking into a cafe and listening to people talk about their grandkids and what they’re doing for the weekend, it’s just small town community heart.”

Lamoureux added she chose the constituency because she wants to help protect the value the area holds to Albertans.

For Lamoureux being chosen as a candidate means moving Alberta forward in a positive manner, and as a candidate she will stand up and fight for what is on the platform.

“It’s about accountability and I want to be a good leader for that region,” said Lamoureux, adding the platform offered to Albertans is “phenomenal.”

“It takes care of everybody and that makes me proud and that is what I want to go out and promote to Albertans, that there is a government that listens and there is a government that can take care of Albertans in different situations,” explained Lamoureux.

She added true leadership is about advancing your people and not about advancing yourself.

Lamoureux describes herself as an ordinary Albertan who gets up and goes to work every day.

“Being unhappy with our current government that has broken my spirit as an Albertan I went online to find the best of the worst that I was going to vote for,” Lamoureux said in regard to why she decided to run with the Alberta Advantage Party. “I came upon the Alberta Advantage Party and as I was reading their platform I couldn’t believe that they have been listening to Albertans and have created such a grassroots made-for-Alberta plan.”

Lamoureux added the more she read the more excited she became and wants what this party has to offer Albertans.

Lamoureux has hardworking kids, nieces and nephews who are new to the workforce and are striving for independence, adding she wants the younger generation to know there can be good governance and they can be heard, supported, and help build a better Alberta.

“The Alberta Advantage Party models my values and expectations of a government and I am really excited to be part of moving this party forward,” said Lamoureux. “This is a government that Albertans deserve.”

Candidates for the Leduc – Beaumont and Fort Saskatchewan – Vegreville constituencies were also announced.
