There will be another familiar face to Drumheller in the Alberta Party, but this time for the Olds-Didsbury-Three Hills constituency.
Chase Brown, who grew up just south of Drumheller and attended high school in the valley, is looking to represent the Olds- Didsbury-Three Hills Constituency. Brown became involved with the Alberta Party during his time attending post-secondary in Camrose and co-founded the Camrose constituency association.
"I was talking to the leader of the party, Stephen Mandel, the former mayor of Edmonton. We talked about the Olds-Didsbury-Three Hills riding which under the new boundaries for this next election includes my house near Hussar. He said they were looking for a candidate there and he wanted me to seek the nomination, and I decided to do so, and here we are," he explained.
Brown currently works in the agricultural sector and will be finishing his Management Degree with a Major in Economics this spring at the University of Alberta.
"One thing I suppose people often ask me what the Alberta Party is. To me, although it is a centrist party, that translates to being both socially and fiscally responsible. Albertans want change. Slashing funding to crucial social programs is not the way to grow our economy in my opinion. Instead, I think we must ensure that we start spending our taxpayer dollars more effectively and efficiently."
The candidate promises to be transparent and honest when it comes to representing his constituencies issues.
"For my riding, one of my biggest concerns is the rise in rural crime. It seems that everytime you check, there is another or another incident. So it is clear that crime is on the rise in both frequency and severity. I'm aware of how serious this is for our constituents and that we need to look at a practical and real solution on how to solve this problem," concluded Brown.
