SEPTEMBER 2019

Hello Sandstone & MacEwan!

I hope you all had a wonderful summer!

Thank you all for the messages of support and input I receive from you each month. It is encouraging to hear from so many of my constituents who contact me through my o?ce or on social media. I am proud to represent you in the Legislative Assembly of Alberta, and I look forward to continuing to work hard for Calgary-Beddington.

As you may be aware, our government took on an aggressive legislative agenda during the spring session, to strengthen the economy, reduce our debt, and be a responsible caretaker of the public dime. I am excited to continue doing so in the upcoming fall session. We were able to pass 13 pieces of legislation on behalf of Albertans, in only 7 short weeks before spring session ended. I have every expectation that the fall session will be equally or more productive.

Over the summer, I have had the pleasure of meeting with community associations in our riding, as well as local leaders and government representatives. I had very productive meetings with our federal Member of Parliament, Hon. Michelle Rempel, as well as our city council member, Ward 4 Councillor Sean Chu. Our local CBE Trustee Althea Adams also met with me to bring to my attention her priorities for our area. We discussed important issues a?ecting all of you and worked on how best we can represent you in government.

As Minister of Seniors and Housing, I have met with countless stakeholders who come to see me from all corners of our province. It was also a great privilege to hear from so many Albertan seniors during my travels, and I am anxious to continue touring the many seniors residences stretching out across Alberta. I have requested that everyone submit to my o?ce all their ideas and suggestions to reduce red tape and improve access to seniors and a?ordable housing services. Let’s work together to make life better for Albertans.

Thank you to all who attended the Stampede Pancake Breakfast on July 13th by Huntington Hills Community Association that I sponsored as your MLA!I had a wonderful time with so many of my constituents, and I am so happy that over 2000 of you made it out for breakfast. Looking forward to next year!

Please do not hesitate to contact my constituency o?ce for any questions or concerns that we may assist you with. I wish you all a fantastic start to the fall season and hope to keep hearing from you!
