“If we continue to work hard and earn every vote, we will be able to defeat the NDP and send a message to the Trudeau Liberals”

Over next door in Alberta, it seems Jason Kenney and the United Conservative Party (UCP) will be well prepared to take the fight to Rachael Notley’s NDP government, in the next provincial election.

Erika Barootes, UCP Party President
According to Erika Barootes UCP Party President, “It’s safe to say that our party of 150,000 Albertans got ‘er done.  We set an ambitious goal of raising an extra $500,000 at the end of 2018 through our email campaign. We knew this goal wouldn’t be easy, but our members came through big.

Apparently approximately 6,250 Albertans donated $630,000 in our December email campaign alone ... an average of just over $100 each.

Barootes went on to say, “How amazing is that? This means we can continue to stand up for Albertans and fight for the Alberta Advantage without holding back”.

A website she had online, in her campaign for the presidency of the United Conservative Party, had this to say about Barootes:

Having worked and volunteered in politics for over 14 years, Erika Barootes knows how important grassroots communities are to growing political organizations, campaigns, and electoral success.

She has managed campaigns and worked in the legislature but her most importance experience comes from her years of volunteerism at the constituency level, both provincially and federally.

Constituency associations are the backbone of the conservative movement and Erika knows that the success of the UCP will be contingent on the engagement of grassroots members in every region of this province.

It seems that experience came through in spades for the party, as a jubilant, Barootes indicated the successful campaign was all because of party members:

You are the reason we continue to make history and we will do so in the weeks and months ahead”. Continuing, she said, “Like most good things, these next few months won’t be easy. But.

“The hard work is only beginning, but thanks to you our members we are moving full steam ahead”, she concluded. 

That leads me to agree with a comment from the UPC website which said ... Enthusiasm for change, continues to build.

There should be no doubt to anyone in Notley's government, it looks like the Alberta Advantage will so be back, to put the province back on a footing for economic growth.
