Three contenders will be at city school Tuesday
The Alberta Party is inviting southern Albertans to meet its leadership contenders.
Its Lethbridge constituency associations will play host to “meet and greet” session on Tuesday at Coalbanks Elementary School in Copperwood.
While the three candidates will offer brief presentations, the event organizers say they hope to meet local voters “in a fun, relaxed atmosphere.”
With nominations now closed, the three are Calgary MLA Rick Fraser, Calgary energy lawyer Kara Lewis and former Edmonton mayor Stephen Mandel.
“Each candidate will introduce themselves and their vision for leadership of the party,” says the party’s southern Alberta organizer, Deirdre MacLean.
Each will also respond to written questions, she adds.
“All eyes will be on the Alberta Party for this leadership event,” she says. “We are at a pivotal point in Alberta politics.”
The session, open to all, will be held from 6:45 to 9 p.m. in Coalbanks Elementary, 249 Coalbanks Blvd. W., on the west side of Copperwood. Those wanting a guaranteed seat may send an RSVP through the party’s website, http://www.albertaparty.ca.
The following evening, a similar session will be held in Medicine Hat at the Heartwood Cafe on N. Railway St. SE.
Party members will select their new leader, using a preferential online ballot, from Feb. 25 to 27.
