Should I run for MLA in my riding?
I’ve been following politics for a while now and I’ve noticed on common thing our politicians like to talk about; and it’s “their agenda”.
I sometimes wonder if they realize that they are suppose to be working and representing us. My frustrations have led me think that maybe I should run in my riding as an independent, and see if someone who isn’t a politician can get elected. I have worked in industry and the oil patch (Oilsands included) for many years; so I think I have a good idea in speaking to my fellow working class Albertan, what is important to them.
I immigrated here as a child from Eastern Europe and grew up fairly poor (no silver spoon in mouth, and no paid by mommy and daddy education). I’m just a simple working class guy with kids who likes to get his hands dirty, but has had the fortune of working in Alberta and being able to make something of himself.
I’ve spent the last few years in more senior roles in the oil and gas sector, and have a some management experience to understand what makes businesses here tick. I want to take the politicians out of politics and represent the people of this province rather than the politicians personal interests. just want to get people’s thoughts.
