Jason Nixon takes landslide win in
Rimbey-Rocky Mountain House-Sundre
by Glen Mazza,
Editor

The Mountaineer spoke to UCP candidate Jason Nixon on election night at approximately 9:30 pm. Nixon explained what a majority government under the United Conservative Party will mean for Alberta.

"It is a great day for Alberta,” declared Nixon.

"Voters spoke loud and clear that they want a different direction for the provincial government. They like our (UCP) plan with a focus on jobs, the economy, pipelines and being proud of Alberta and fighting for our spot in Confederation," said Nixon. He added that the UCP will be "making sure that we will be the economic engine of this country again."

As for what this means for the Rimbey-Rocky Mountain House-Sundre constituency to have an MLA in the ruling party, Nixon is excited to bring his riding's perspective.

"It is a good our opportunity for our constituency to have someone who is around the table making decisions for the future. There is so much more opportunity on the government side of the aisle to advocate for change. Concerns from our community can be taken to people around the decision-making table," explained Nixon.

"That is the advantage of having a UCP MLA in a majority government," he concluded.
