I have been overwhelmed by the support I’ve received from the voters, my family, and members of the community who have volunteered countless hours to make this a reality. Campaigns are not run by one person – it takes an entire team – and I owe a debt of gratitude to everyone who walked door to door with me, put up signs, manned the campaign office, fed the volunteers and constituents, advised me, educated me, and supported me in so many other ways. I vow to uphold my promise to work tirelessly and ensure that your concerns are heard in the Legislature.
I want to thank Robert Bouchard for his service, and for running a respectful campaign. I commend Karen Felker for throwing her hat in the ring – she has a great heart and a genuine desire to help people.
Thank you, as well, to Jane Groenewegen for her 20 years of service. She has stated that she wants to play a more hands-on role in the community so I know she will continue to be a wonderful asset to Hay River and I look forward to collaborating with her.
Finally, congratulations to our new MLA for Hay River South, Wally Schumann. I know he will provide another strong voice for Hay River and I am excited to begin working with him.
Once again, thank you all!
