Riding Update — Week of November 12, 2018
It has been a month since I was able to spend a full week in the riding. Much of the week was spent in the Edson office, meeting with constituents, returning phone calls and addressing important riding issues.
Last Saturday, while in Drayton Valley, I met the winner of my 2018 Christmas card contest, Abigail Mallory, a grade six student from St. Anthony School. I was so pleased to present her with a congratulatory certificate.
Last Sunday, I attended the Remembrance Day ceremony in Thorsby. I also dropped in at the legions in Winfield, Warburg, and for the “Ringing of the Bells” at Pigeon Lake.
On Tuesday of this week, I attended the Jasper Chamber of Commerce AGM, and updated everyone on the happenings in Ottawa and on Thursday, I helped tally votes at the UCP vote in Edson.
On Friday, I met with constituents and later spent time shoveling snow. Isn’t winter fun! Oh well, look at the bright side — it is good exercise for me.
Saturday morning, I attended the Yellowhead EDA Director’s Meeting, and then on to Drayton Valley for their 9th Annual Foundation Festival of Lights Gala Dinner that evening.
I will return to Ottawa on Sunday, as the House of Commons is scheduled to sit for the next four weeks before the Christmas break. Look for my update next Friday on the happenings of Parliament.
