I believe that an elected official’s first and foremost responsibility is to represent the people who elect them. This means that the people in their communities should know that they can always trust their representative to do what they say they will, when they say they will.
Our province has some of the best services in our country, but those services cost money. We need to not be afraid to look at ways to save money while preserving the quality of those services. I believe that government can strive to protect the jobs of front line workers while making sure our services are effecient as possible.
I believe that one of the roles of the government is to ensure that social progress continues to move forward. I support making sure that Albertans who need support receive the right kind of support in the right kind of way at the right time.
We will need government to support some services always, but there are many opportunities where our private sector may be able to provide services to people more efficiently and at a lower cost to Albertans. We should explore those.
